The Canary Girls: The workers the war turned yellow
About a million women worked at thousands of Ministry of Munitions sites during both world wars.
But the number of those killed or seriously injured in the line of duty is a mystery - something Ms Dale is trying to find out as part of her research.
"It was a really dangerous job, which I think is why so little is known about it," she said.
"Women weren't allowed anywhere near a gun, yet they were filling shells in factories.
"They were actively engaged in an act of war which I think made people uncomfortable."
