The Women's Auxiliary Air Force

The woman's role in war was recognised and formalised during the First World War, and the need for women to take on roles that allowed men to engage in the fighting was a significant manpower factor throughout the twentieth Century. The WAAF were not solely "airmen's comforts" - they filled many posts in which a woman's often surer or gentler touch was very effective, particularly in the medical trades within the RAF as well as in sector commands, as drivers, and in operations rooms and on intelligence staffs. This is the the ladies' story and it is worth reading. Covers all aspects of women's service conditions and in the theatres of war.
