Lindsay Girl in the “Invasion”

Sgt. Lois A. Green, of Toronto and Lindsay, who is in charge of the first small group of Canadian Women’s Army Corps members to serve the headquarters staff, as Canadian troops invade enemy territory. On the sleeve of her khaki uniform she now wears the “invasion” flash of a flaming dagger. She has taken the injections given all soldiers taking part in the invasion.


One of the early members joining the CWAC, Sgt. Green was in the recruiting office when it was located at Bay and Front Sts. For a year and a half she has been serving overseas. Parents in Lindsay have heard very little about her work.
