In 1919, the Womenís Work Committee of the Imperial War Museum commissioned professional portrait photographer Olive Edis to photograph womenís war work in France and Belgium.

As a result of a month long tour she produced 171 prints. Her skill as a portraitist is evident in the intimate yet dignified studies of women working and living in what had very recently been the main theatre of war.

Here are just 10 of the photographs she produced for IWM.

OLIVE EDIS - Through the Lens of Britain's First Female War Photographer

14th March 1919 - On Friday 14th we started what proved to be about the biggest dayís work. We first drove back in the rambling old ambulance car to the hospital where I had photographed in the dispensary Ė 25 Stationary, where we grouped all the Sisters in the chapel. They made a perfectly beautiful picture in their grey dresses and white caps with the touch of scarlet on their capes. I was immensely taken with the whole thing.

We then went on for an hourís drive to Pont de líArche, where after a good lunch I had five more rather difficult groups to do, a barberís regular Bond St. establishment with Miss Button as coiffeuse, others of machinery, electric deposits and acetyline welding.

We then had a long two hours more in the ambulance to Gournay. I managed to get outside with the driver, for the noise inside with the rattling of the fittings was fearful, and had a wonderful view of the flooded Seine in mist and rain Ė a most beautiful winding road through the forest of Lyons.

The way was long and unknown, and Lady Normanís help was needed with the maps. As it grew dark we had the benefit of a faint glow of moon. We passed through Beauvais, with its lovely Cathedral and Choir with flying buttresses, but it was closed. We reached Prťcis about 9.30 only to find that our unit had flown three days before. It was rather an awkward predicament on dark, unknown roads. However, the girls seemed mightily pleased with the adventure, which made all the difference. As it would have been unheard of for three benighted ladies to seek shelter at Chantily GHQ of the French army, we made for Creil, a dull ugly manufacturing town where the Germans had been.

We found there was a train to Paris at 10:25, so got the chaffeuses to take us to the station and then sped them on their homeward way, whilst we took the train.
