  • Interviewee name: Patience Maxwell

  • During the Second World War Patience Maxwell was a driver in the Women's Transport Service (FANY). In this section of a much longer recording she describes driving for the Army Blood Transfusion Service as part of a team working in the West Country collecting blood from volunteer civilians. Earlier in WW2 Patience had driven a lorry for an army bomb disposal unit in Bristol and, aged 23, received a commendation for bravery after driving three unexploded German bombs out of the city so they could be safely blown up.
