In 1939, what was the W.S.B. ?

'Womens Service...something...??'

Google hasn't helped on this one, nor has searching TNA. I'm guessing it's something like the WVS given the 'Home Help' entry. Possibly something local to Liverpool, where she was at the time.

(The Holland notation is because she married George William Holland in 1948).

There are some mentions in the newspapers during the war of the Women's Service Bureau in Liverpool.
