Katherine's Two Sisters
Isabella joined the Auxiliary
Territorial Service (ATS), the same branch of the Services as her sister
She probably took the same route as Katherine to the Meeanee Barrack
then onwards to Saldean, where she would have been officially enrolled
into the ATS.
She advanced to the rank of Lt Corporal serving in the UK and abroad.
The Newspaper article below, refers a
marriage to Gunner Robert D. Caskey (Royal Artillery).
Ancestry list them married in 1940 at Shardlow, Derbyshire.
Interestingly, the Royal Horse Artilliary were stationed here in Bures
I was unable to find any Military Service
records online for Isabella and Robert.
Ancestry records indicate she later
married Clifford Duckworth, but I can find no date when this took place.
So what happened to Robert ?
Isabella & Clifford had two children.
Isabella survived the war and died in
Blackburn 2nd February 1995.
Probate confirmed her name was Isabella Aitken Duckworth.

According to Cameron Carr, his sister
Elizabeth enrolled in the NAAFI.
The NAAFI in Colchester was located at the Artillery (Le Cateau) Barracks,
so it would seem plausible she chose to work in the Barracks where Katherine
and Isabella had briefly attended.
Unfortunately like Isabella, I can find no Military Service records
However, she is documented below as Manageress of the NAAFI
On the 23rd April 1944, Elizabeth married Paul Garrow at St
Marys Church in Bures, she survived the war and subsequently
died in Birmingham 1993.
