I have a scrapbook, a collection of newspaper articles and radio boradcast transcripts made by my Nanna, Mrs Win Masters. She was a RAF wife, and during the 60s wrote for "Tail Spin" and broadcast forces anecdotes she wrote for ABC and CBS radio ("women's session"). She was based in Singapore amongst other places. Articles are about daily life and hair-raising events such as remembering dealing with a 'hysterical mob' in Egypt (1952). The pages are rather delicate and the scrap book probably needs a bit of TLC. The articles finish in the early 80s. She continued to write for the local base news at Wyton (Cambs) after being posted back in England, and then to write for local parish magazines and newspapers. The scrapbook is a snap shot of life from the perspective of a forces wife. It makes fascinating reading. It covers so many different topics and really gives an insight into how forces wives coped with raising a family in an unfamiliar country. It also echoes the etiquette and attitutdes of the times.
