When Harriet Simeon's went to fight in WWI she followed him overeseas.
Women were not allowed to serve in combat so Harriet enlisted as a nurse. She served as a nurse in Egypt, Britain and France.
In 1918 Harriet enlisted in the new Women's Royal Air Force (WRAF)
In 1919 she was promoted to Assistant Air Commandant making her the highest ranking woman in the WRAF.
When she returned from the war she petitioned the Government to be recognised as a returned soldier and to be properly paid.
Many people found it hard to believe that a woman had held such a high rank in the WRAF. Harriet is proof that women made a contribution to WWI even though that contribution is often not recognised.
