    The women volunteer's that went into the navy during ww1 were called Yeomanette's. They did basicly cleric duties that I know of but i'm no expert.

    They are at some base, but the writing is faint and can't make it out at the bottom of the picture.

    I just found this website that has good information. It seems there was only a little over 11,000 women that served.
