WAAF by Squadron Leader Beryl E. Escott

Book Description

The story of the Women s Auxiliary Air Force is a journey of exploration. This intriguing history tells the story of the wartime WAAF at work and play. They were no decorative adjunct to the RAF, but an integral working force that eventually saved the RAF 150,000 men, whose places they admirably filled. Debarred from flying, they nevertheless could be found in posts ranging from cooks to aircraft fitters. In secrecy they worked as codebreakers at Bletchley Park, in the Y Listening Service, as code and cypher officers in Churchill s War Cabinet, as air interpreters, and as SOE agents in occupied France. Many others were posted abroad to work. This book provides a fascinating view of their many roles. About the authorSquadron Leader Beryl E. Escott joined the RAF in 1961 and in her spare time edited magazines and wrote books for the service. Leaving the RAF in 1986, she is now widely recognised as the leading WAAF historian."
