I am an eighty-year-old widow used to waiting all my life and now
Ive finished. I am the middle of five daughters, who joined the
WAAF at 19 and enjoyed it. Demobbed and married two years later. My husband
joined Army Post Office and I followed him around Tripoli, Cyprus, Germany
and Kenya. I came home with four children and started work in a local
shop, then Telephone Exchange and lastly went into Local Government, where
I stayed till I was 63. I couldnt settle, so helped my hairdresser
2 days a week, have finished now just go sequence dancing every
week at RAF Radar Reunions and WAAFA re-unions.
