Re: 3 WAAFs killed Battle of Britain

"
The attack on Biggin Hill was severe and all but put the airfield out of action. It also saw the deaths of two female ground personnel – ACW1 Edna Button and NAAFI lady Mary Cremin. 39 year old Edna came from Tasmania and is buried in Cray, Kent, whilst 24 year-old Mary came from Cork, Ireland, and is buried in Orpington."

It is the intention of listing by name all groundcrew killed or injured during the Battle, information being got from the Casualty Cards

Re: 3 WAAFs killed Battle of Britain

Sounds like a cracking project... all the best.

And thanks for the previous article on BaW. Just going through it and had a query..

Quote:
8 August 1940 would then see the only Marine Branch fatalities of the Battle of Britain when AC1 Ray Wheeler was killed and Sgt Wilf Vosper killed as High Speed Launch HSL 116, based at RAF Calshot, was attacked by Luftwaffe aircraft off the Isle of Wight.
Could not locate Vosper in CWGC https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/fi...dditionalInfo= - is he not Commonwealth?
