Photo notes: Photo detail from a larger group photo taken in 1916 of the staff of T. H. Nice, 21 Abbeygate Street, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, England. The firm of T. H. Nice, motor engineers and cycle makers, was one of many local firms recruited in 1915 by the East Anglican Munitions Committee to take on munitions production. Women munitions workers were known as “Munitionettes.” The three in the photo are wearing their newly issued triangular “On War Service” badges.
