This article examines the establishment of the Women's Royal Army Corps in the 1940s, and its relationship with the Auxiliary Territorial Corps, the female wing of the British army during the Second World War. It argues that a study such as this demonstrates that historians need to be more fluid on our approach to chronological breaks, and to consider continuites, and well as divisions, between periods usually seen as historically discrete, such as war and post-war.
