A good down to earth account with humour. Gives me a better insight to my own mother's time in the WAAF.

This book is a simple honest account of a young womans experience in war time Britain. Pip Beck was an ordinary english young woman like thousands of others who volantered to serve her country as a WAAF R/T operator in Bomber Command. It describes her life and loves and experiences during the 'finest hour', her exitement of arriving at RAF Waddington, her enthusiasm for aircraft and the sadness she felt for the lost aircrew. A good read which evokes the feelings of the time.

I really enjoyed this book, Pip's character shines through. There is something for everyone in it. Pips concern's for the aircrew, some of whom never returned, she also had an important job of her own and these ladies served their country with pride and dedication. There is humour in this book too. I found it interesting when the new Lancasters flew to Lossiemouth and were fired on by the Navy and were attacked by a Spitfire as they weren't recognised. I have read a few biography's and this is among the best.
