The Women’s Auxiliary Service of the Anders army, which was formed at the same time as the Polish Armed Forces in the USSR, was based on the same organizational principles and hierarchy as the army. It consisted of about five thousand volunteers, who performed duties relating to first aid, culture, propaganda, transport, administration, sentry duties and communication. This force was disbanded in 1946.
