I recently obtained my mother's service record. I attach an extract, it is very difficult to decipher! She joined the WAAF in 1941 in Harrogate and was assigned to various stations before moving to RAF Finningley in 1944. There she met my father, Dennis Fortescue, who had just returned from service in India. She was discharged in 1946 and they married in August 1946. I wonder if any of her colleagues are still alive? She kept in touch for many years with Mary Marbaix, who was one of her best friends at Finningley. My mother passed away in 1999 and my father in 2013 but they are both very much on my mind at present, and I went to see the RAF 100 events in London on July 10th. Per ardua ad astra!
