Born Ann Berrington, her parents Frederick and Rosa kept the Kings Head on Church Street, Oswestry, Shropshire. She married Thomas Ellis-Hughes in 1933 who would later become Major Ellis-Hughes. After the war he returned to work for an insurance agency and the family lived in North Wales and later Cardiff. The couple went on to breed chihuahuas and cocker spaniels and then went to judging even judging at Crufts.
In retirement she returned to Oswestry.
She was visited by Beatrice Temple at Blandford on 16 Feb 1942, 14 Apr 1942 and 19 Aug 1942. She attended a couple of store keeping courses in April 1943 and seems to have been transferred to ATS Staff at Coleshill from 14 Aug 1943.
There are some details that help date the photos to 1942 in Dorset. The women are wearing the formal ATS Uniform with the Royal Signals badge on the left breast and the single pip of a subaltern. On the shoulder is the shield badge of 38th (Welsh) Infantry Division. They were stationed in Dorset between Nov 1941 and Sept 1942 and we know the ATS operators were passing they intelligence to the local Divisional HQ. It was better cover to wear the badge of a local unit than something related to Auxiliary Units
The other women is very likely to be Dorothy Monck-Mason.
