Author Biography - Pip Beck
Pip Beck volunteered for the WAAF in 1941 and was posted to RAF Waddington, where she trained as a R/T operator. In mid 1943 she was moved to Bardney, Lincs where, in order to satisfy her desire to fly, she unsuccessfully applied to remuster as Radar Mechanic (Air). Pip completed a wireless operator's course and was posted to Upper Heyford where, together with service at its satellite station at Barford St. John, she spent the last two years of the war.
