Wings Over Wick
1939 - 1945
Women At War

Mrs N Watson, Stourbridge, West Midlands
I was in the WAAF and not actually at Wick but a Radar Operator at Tannach a few miles away. However, I remember Wick because it was from there that a party of us had our first flight - actually officially to see the aerial Radar equipment in use but really a good excuse to get a free flight - bearing in mind that few people ever flew anywhere before 1939.

It must have taken place during the summer of 1945 and we went in a B17 - "Flying Fortress" with a RAF crew. We flew up over John O'Groats and along the North coast before coming back to Wick.
