    National Archives - Women's Royal Air Force records

    I've just had an e-mail from NA and the above records are on-line. I've just found my grandmother's service records in WWI in the Women's Royal Air Force! 1917!

    I've just downloaded the record - five pages in all, which includes the cover sheet. Gives where she was posted/trained, and her home address in Glasgow and next of kin (father) and family address. And her signature etc.

      Incidentally - I notice that there's another ordinary Will plus an extra 280 Seamen's Wills there, as well!
