Description

A Kodachrome colour photograph of Miss Kamp dressed in British Naval uniform, taken by JCA Redhead (1886-1954) during World War Two. Although not allowed to fight during World War Two, many women volunteered for support roles in the Armed Forces, working as nurses or in staff administration. This photograph is a Kodachrome transparency. Introduced by Kodak in 1935, Kodachrome is regarded as the first 'modern' colour photographic process. Kodachrome film was imported into Britain from the USA and was in very short supply during World War Two. As Head of Kodak Ltd's Photo Finishing department in Harrow, England, Redhead had access to supplies of this scarce colour film.
