I'm sure we've had this topic before... Anyway: My Dad's parents both drove lorries for the RAF. Grandma drove the aircrew to their planes with 158 SQN at RAF Lisset (the Halifax squadron that had the famous 'Friday 13th' bomber). Grandad started off at Drem airfield (one of his jobs was lighting the flarepath during fog - which was quite hair-raising at times!), then was sent to North Africa (on a convoy around Africa) where he drove lorries from Egypt to Palestine. After the war he was transferred back to Britain, and met my Grandma on an airfield. My Mum's parents: My Grandad was in the Black Watch - but I know next to nothing about his actual war record. He died when I was 8. My Grandma was some kind of important secretary type - again, I have no real idea of what she did, as she never really discusses the war.
