    Although women did not fly in direct combat, 166 served in the Air Transport Auxiliary which ferried aircraft from factories to their bases, and servicewomen like this Wren (from WRNS, Women’s Royal Naval Service) radio mechanic flew to test radios.

    What a nice photo. Was it PBS that had "Fly Girls", which was a program about these women? It may have been American Experience or Frontline that had this on, and it was really a good program.
