January 1916 – a girl wants a job

DC 14 Jan 1916 - Girl advert

In the Dartford Chronicle’s Situations Wanted column on 14th January 1916

There are not many Situations Wanted adverts in the Dartford Chronicle at this time, and normally they are for specific roles, such as nurse, clerk or labourer.

Miss Keturah Mankey, who lived at 29 St John’s Terrace in Sutton at Hone, obviously needed a job but it seems war work in the local munitions factories may not be an option.

Keturah’s uncle was Arthur Mankey, who was killed in the Great War, and is commemorated on the War Memorial.
