Jenny Whitehead at Work
Among the members of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service posted overseas was Jenny Whitehead (left), seen here working in a photographic darkroom.
Whitehead and the man to her right both hold photographs typical of official and publicity images produced by the Royal Canadian Navy. With considerable experience as a photographer, Whitehead joined the WRCNS in February 1943, and underwent photographic training in Ottawa later that year. Posted to London in February 1944, she helped develop the first photographs from the D-Day landings on 6 June, 1944.
