Women Yeomanry at Work: A stretcher party of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry Corps at work today (Monday) in Norbury, Surrey, England.

The First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (Princess Royal's Volunteer Corps) (FANY [PRVC]) is a British independent, all-female registered charity formed in 1907. It was active in both nursing and intelligence work during the World Wars. Although its members wear a military-style uniform, it is not part of the Regular Army or Army Reserve.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
