Air Ministry Photograph. Crown Copyright Reserved. W.A.A.F. Volunteer Medical Service. When air ambulances evacuating seriously wounded men from the battle areas run into bad weather, they make an emergency landing on an R.A.F. Fighter Command airfield on the south-east of England. There the wounded are off-loaded by airmen and looked after by W.A.A.Fs - all of whom are volunteers for the job. Picture Shows: Leading aircraft woman Marie Thomas 21 year old cook from Great Yarmouth, writing a letter for a soldier who has been wounded in the face, whilst 20 year old Joyce Beresford, a clerk of 24 Spencer Road, Herne Hill, London, lights a cigarette for a man wounded in the hand. Removed from an old scrapbook, so the back of the photograph has marks on the back, not affecting the front. Item Type: Photo. Quantity Available: 1.
