    I understand my mother was a member of the Auxiliary Fire Service in WW2 probably in the Old Kent Road, Camberwell area. Has anyone any idea if I can find out if this is true and if any information exists about her?
    If not maybe someone could describe what kind of activities she may have undertaken.

    Looking at the site does not seem to indicate that they have any access to previous lists of personnel.
    thanks for your help. I'll keep looking though.

    As I said in another thread, the museum has I think been archived due to recent cuts and there is apparently no access to lists of ex members. I got this when I called the London Fire Brigade recently in an effort to see if my mother was in fact in the AFS during WWll.
