Abstract

In this volume, the author recalls the many experiences and friendships of her years in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force. She and thousands like her joined the WAAF in order to 'do their bit' for the war effort and although the facilities were Spartan and the work less than glamorous, they knew that this would be a time of their lives that none of them would ever forget. After basic training, the author was posted to RAF East Kirkby, an operational bomber station in Lincolnshire in 1944.
