WAAF ASSOCIATION - A BRIEF HISTORY
We grew from about 1,700 members at the outbreak
of war to approximately 180,000 by 1943.
We served in up to 15 types of duty ranging from
catering to meteorology, transport, telephony and
telegraphy, codes and ciphers, Intelligence, Security
and Operation Rooms.
Members of the WAAF were among the 1,570 ground
crew who lost their lives.
The WAAF re-formed into the WRAF in 1949, and
fully integrated into the RAF in 1994.
