Description

Probably Sydney, NSW. 20 March 1941. Assistant Section Officer Gwen Stark (centre) giving last minute instructions to Miss Clarice Taylor (left) and Miss Monica Bullen (right), both members of the Australian Women's Flying Club, prior to leaving for Melbourne to undertake training. They were two of the first NSW women to be accepted into the Women's Auxiliary Australian Air Force (WAAAF), as wireless telegraphists. The other three women were Olive Board and Lenore White, both from the Women's Emergency Signalling Corps, and Mrs Dorothy Sanders, a cub leader. (Donor M. Bullen)
