Women's Auxilliary Air Force (WAAFs)

Founded in January 1941 the Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) was formed to enable the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) to release more men for overseas service during the Second World War.

Approximately 4750 women joined. These women made an important contribution to the war, taking up positions as pilots, cooks, radar plotters, mess-hands, meterologists, drivers, equipment assistants, medical orderlies and typists for the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

With thanks to Errol Martyn for providing Online Cenotaph the seed data for this project.
