  • Description

    Home of the Penguins - RAF Lady Motor Drivers On Duty.

    Location of events unknown.

    A female senior officer of the Women's Royal Air Force stands before a line of women in uniform - giving them instructions? A car is seen in the background.

    Nice shot of the women cleaning and preparing their motorbikes and sidecars for use. Other women in overalls work on machinery.

    Two women riding motorcycles with sidecars drive towards camera. An RAF man gives them a card (identity card or job to drive to?). Several more shots of RAF men giving paperwork or cards to women driving open cars and motorbikes.

    Great shot of women driving motorbikes and sidecars out of gates of a building.

    For search purposes - Women's Auxiliary Air Force - WAAF (now WRAF).
