The extract has been taken from the Suffolk & Essex Free Press,
dated 6th November 1941

It refers to Meeanee. This would have been Meeanee Barracks at the

They must have processed hundreds of girls from Essex and Suffolk
wishing to join the services, but to remember Katherine at this sad time, must have been so appreciated by the family.
