Until December 1941, recruitment was by volunteer enlistment, but by that date unmarried women in the age group 18-40 years could be drafted into auxiliary service. All female auxiliary services were uniformed and under military discipline, with free rations, quarters, and clothing. Yet, they were paid according to civil service pay rates and were not considered members of the armed forces, but auxiliaries of the armed forces. Their ranks did not correspond to military ranks.
