|The LACW above right is wearing the battle-dress she would have worn when on duty.|
During the war radar was top secret. Radar operators were forbidden to talk about their work even to family.
The "fist & sparks" badge is the wireless (which included radar) operators trade badge.
The propeller badge is her rank, LACW.
|WAAF servicewomen performed many duties as diverse as aircraft mechanics to barrage balloon crews. Usually photographs were taken in Service uniform as shown above on the left, which had brass RAF buttons and an eagle on each shoulder seam. The early volunteers often had the letter A (for Auxiliary) beneath but this was omitted later in the war. There were often no badges to show which duties she performed.|
