Help with uniform

Postby susanj » Tue Jun 21, 2011 8:04 pm

This is a photo of my Great Aunt. Louie Elizabeth Butler, who was born in 1903 and was orphaned in 1918 at the age of 15. I'm not sure how old she is in the photo and i have tried the Red Cross to try and find information. It could just be in a studio with a studio costume. The background I think is of the seaside.

She married a William Carey in April 1924 then disappeared. At the time of her marriage she was a barmaid at a hotel on Woolwich Common.

Could she have been a VAD I wonder?

The background looks like a painted image so you might be correct in thinking that this was posed in a studio.

I have looked on Ancestry and Louie is listed on a couple of family trees and both have her dying in Ireland, one gives a date of 1927. There is no further information but it might be a starting point for more research.
