Martins Bank’s Branch at Woolton Road is one of a number that is able to operate during the second world war thanks to the “army” of women that steps in to work as managers and clerks in charge.  At Woolton, TWO women share the job of Clerk in Charge over the war years, and their images are featured as part of a series of article in Martins Bank Magazine, which in 1946 pays tribute to such women and the amazing work they did, balancing home and war duties with working for the Bank.

Woolton's Wartime Women.jpg1946 03 MBM.jpgThe country did not put them into uniforms; they were not given medals or decorations; unobtrusively they took over jobs left vacant by the men who joined the forces. Quietly they are returning to their former posts or leaving to make homes for their returning menfolk. Not all of them took up front-line positions - there were those who carried on the jobs they had always done. There were also those on whom the limelight did not shine because their most valuable service in the national danger was rendered in key positions behind the scenes. Through the darkness of many a weary night they performed their civil defence duties and were at their posts as usual in the morning. Many of them kept their homes together and looked after aged relatives in addition to their banking duties. It is altogether fitting that we should pay tribute to them at this time when their special responsibilities are coming to an end.  Addressing ourselves more especially to our colleagues who joined the forces we want to show you the photographs of the ladies who did your jobs while you were away – at Woolton Road, Miss E M Glover and Miss E A Cubbin.
