Great footage of women arriving at a depot and joining the ranks of the ATS.
Titles read: "CALL-UP FOR ATS".
Somewhere in Britain.
Various shots show hundreds of "the first girl conscripts this country has ever known" arriving at a depot where they are to join the ranks of the ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service). The women have their mouths and feet checked over by the MO (Medical Officer), then are given their cutlery and mugs and uniforms. Nice shots of the girls putting on their new shoes, jackets and hats.
Several shots of the women marching on the parade ground in their uniforms. We see women of the ATS after four weeks' training, parading before the Princess Royal (Princess Mary), Controller Commandant.
