"When women first appeared in the army?
Women have fought in the Greek Wars in the 4th century BC. Slovania women went to war with fathers and husbands... Women weren't afraid of death!

During the first World War in England, women have to take the Royal Military Air Force. Even in Russia, Germany, France, many women have served in military hospitals and sanitary trains. And in the 2nd World War, the world has witnessed the next phenomenon. Women have served in all forces in many countries: UK army- 225,000 in American- 500,000 in German- 500,000 in Soviet about one millionth... Women held all military posts including the all-male.

Joan Elisabeth Lowther Murray (née Clarke) was an English cryptanalyst and numismatist best known for her work as a code-breaker at Bletchley Park in the section known as Hut 8 and quickly became the only female practitioner of Banburismus, a cryptanalytic process developed by Alan Turing which reduced the need for bombes electromechanical devices during World War II. Clarke had the same position as her male coworkers, she was being paid less due to her gender. Although she did not personally seek the spotlight, her important role in the Enigma project that decrypted Nazi Germany's secret communications earned her awards and citations, such as appointment as a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), in 1946. Clarke and Turing had been close friends since soon after they met, and continued to be until Turing's death in 1954. They shared many hobbies and had similar personalities. #historicalpage #historiansunion #militariawomen #womeninarmy #worldwarwomen #womenhistory #historypassion #historytime #alanturing #joanclarke #cryptanalyst #numismatist #wartime #hut8 #enigma #theenigmacode #BletchleyPark #womeninthewar #womeninwar #ladiesinthewar #warladies #worldwar2 #wwii #ww2 #secondworldwar #worldwarii #worldwartwo #thegreatwar #womeninuniform
