To mark the release of her latest book, Army Girls, historian and author Tessa Dunlop chairs an exclusive panel featuring some of the last surviving female soldiers of the Second World War.

Eighty years on from this groundbreaking legislation, hear from several inspirational women, all of whom served in the khaki of the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS), the largest of the three female military services, during the war.
