Sgt. Lois Green leads invasion group of CWAC
Lindsay girl formerly stationed in Toronto now in London, Eng., is chosen leader of C.W.A.C. group to be attached to headquarters in the coming invasion.
The most common thing we hear these days is when some one of our local boys step up into the headlines after having done something spectacular in the army, air force, or navy however it looks as if the local girls in the CWAC Women’s branch of the Army are going to occupy that coveted position for awhile and may even give the boys a run for their money.
Sgt. Lois A. Green, CWAC, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Green, Division St., here has taken a step in this direction in that she is listed as one of the eight girls in London, Eng., that have “sewn invasion flashes” on their uniforms. Six of these girls under the leadership of Sgt. Green will go into field on D-Day as part of the headquarters staff- the first Canadian women to be attached to an army in action. The other two girls will be attached to Gen. Eisenhower’s staff in London dealing with invasion plans.
Sgt. Green was for a time stationed at the recruiting office at Bay and Front Sts. in Toronto where she proved very capable in dealing with problems arising. She was considered the mainstay at this branch and no doubt will prove equally efficient on the field.
Six brothers are members of the armed forces of this country which bespeaks well for the patriotic spirit of this family and is indeed an honour to the community in general.
All join in wishing these young warriors “Godspeed” and safe returns.
