During the Second World War Lee Miller was the official war photographer for Vogue magazine. The images contained in Wrens in Camera were organised by the Admiralty and show the female navy officers and workers fulfilling their war duties. There are signallers, technicians, trainers, housekeepers and transport crews. The whole is an important document of women's roles in war-time Britain.
