two female Canadian war photographers

Whitehead and Lockwood at Buckingham Palace in 1945

Toronto. George Dunbar sent me a note the other day celebrating two Canadians who photographed part of the second world war in Europe. Jenny Whitehead was a  leading WREN in the Canadian Navy while Irene Lockwood was a corporal in the RCAF. The image at top left is courtesy of the Science Museum Group in the UK who hold the rights for commercial use.

The photograph was taken by Esten of the Daily Herald. Lockwood went on to marry Keith Ogilvie. Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, she died in Ottawa, Ontario in 2014.
