Identifying Uniform on female
« on: Friday 06 November 20 13:34 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help to identify the uniform of this relative?  I don't know who she is, but am hoping if I can identify the uniform, it will point me in the correct direction.

Thank you Shaun J.  Do you know if there were branches all over.  I am hoping there weren't too many branches, or it will make tracing her impossible.  Was this uniform only used in WW2?

WAAF was the Women's Auxiliary Air Force.  WW2. There were 180,000 of them by 1943.  See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women%27s_Auxiliary_Air_Force
