Our pick from the archive for Day 8’s theme of Challenge is a classic Tug of War. These photographs of games and sports are from Lucy Mary Isabel Thompson's photograph album, documenting her time in France in 1916-1919 whilst serving with the Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps (4/155).
Women of QMAAC served with the Royal Engineers Signals service in France as telegraphists and telephone exchange operators, just like Lucy.
