A group of women of the WRNS receive a lesson in bathing a baby from Matron Miss Maslen-Jones of the Mothercraft Training Society, probably at the MTS headquarters in Highgate, London. The original caption describes the correct way to bath a baby as follows: "The baby is uncovered and soaped thoroughly going well into the creases, and then lifted straight into the bath. Soap is never used on baby's face and the head is always washed over the bath".
