The 'Brains Trust' Of The A.T.S, The girls who man observation posts and work out scientific calculations at a gunnery experimental establishment on the East Coast - popularly known as the 'Brains Trust' of the A.T.S. - have proved to be better than men at the job. This is indeed a high tribute and comes from one who knows what these girls can do - the Royal Artillery Colonel who is their chief. In addition to the A.T.S. women gunnery specialists at this depot, there is one Wren and her job is that of assistant to the naval commander who deals with naval gunnery experiments. These women are the only ones in the service who are allowed to wear the navy blue and scarlet field service cap of the Royal Artillery.
