    Yes, it's a pretty simple uniform to recreate. There are a couple of interesting features though. Firstly, she has a cloth rank star (pip) sewn to each shoulder, and secondly, she has the chinstrap of her cap over the top of her head, in classic ATS Motor Transport fashion. It's easier to see in this pic:

    Cheers, Lez.
    Then i think you might find this interesting. It's from the 'ATS Remembered' website, and is a short service record for a member (a cook to be specific) of 631st HAA Bty: http://www.atsremembered.org.uk/leachsheetpdf.pdf

    Here is another one, this time a trench art ash tray made from a shell and with an ATS cap badge affixed to the front.

    Cheers, Lez.
    This item started life as a sealed cover for a Time Fuze for an artillery shell. These fuzes contained slow burning powder, and exposure to the atmosphere caused a very quick deterioration. The fuze cover had to be removed pretty much just before setting and firing. The rim at the bottom contains a rubber seal. Here are a couple of covers I have from Time & Percussion Fuzes No 221 and 221B:
