WAAF

One of the hardest jobs in the WAAF was the operation of balloons sites.

 

This was a special army force that women were allowed to join but they don’t fight. They move things to different places. The Women's Royal Air Force (WRAF) came into being with the formation of the Royal Air Force in April 1918. However, in 1920 the unit was disbanded, along with the other women's services. The Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) was formed in June 1939 when war seemed imminent again.
