Format: Paperback
I originally got this book as I am interested in morse code and signalling and was hoping to get an insight into its use. Although there are some interesting details I was very soon engrossed in an excellent factual story told in a humorous and lucid manner by Miss Batstone. It is very rare that I get so addicted to a book but this one is a winner - I just couldn't put down. I was transported to the cold wet signal station near Oban (Scotland) where the wrens communicated with sailors off shore by lamp and flag and put up with terrible wartime living conditions. Some messages were often of personal nature - definitely not approved of by the admiralty!
This is a great and very easy read _._ m0cuq

Format: Hardcover
Not only is this book historically facinating, its also incredibly well written and entertaining. It captures the spirit of the times through which Stephanie lived and survived. The story tells of a plucky london girl who has her heart bent on becoming a visual signaller. Despite the naysayers, she becomes one of the best on sea or shore. She scratches out an existence in the harshness of the highlands, taking comfort in her friends, her dreams of romance and her own skill with the lamps. Her characaterisation is vivid and at times hilarious, and you can see the scottish scenery unfold in her prose. I couldn't put it down. Interested in the period or not, I would recommend it to anyone.

I bought this book when I was researching for a novel and I needed some background detail about the everyday lives of wren signallers. In no time at all I was drawn compellingly into a world that existed several years before I was born. The description and characterisations are superb,and I felt that I knew some of the characters personally and cared very much about them. I also found the book ideal for my original purpose.

this is a very interesting book. ww2, its about the experiences of a lady who joined the naval wrens "to free a man for the fleet" i see by other reviews theres plenty of detail. i met this lady the year the book was launched and i still live in the building she was stationed at, i really enjoy reading of her experiences. it also led to the reunion of her and her long lost friend jack campbell who she had built a friendship with by communicating with aldis signal lamp. this is an interesting link to the story
[...].
this is a link to a website with info about the work carried out by the signal loops [...]
