RAF Feltwell in 1943
Written by richard harveyMy Aunt Edith Harvey joined the Raf on 24th July 1941 and was posted to RAF Feltwell as a waitress in the Sergeants Mess. Edith 451316 was billeted in Spitfire block which was a wooden building. By the time her war service was over Edith had risen to become an LACW. She left RAF Feltwell with 56 days severence leave on 5th December 1945. Edith passed away a few years ago but always said that the happiest days of her life were spent at Feltwell. She made lifelong friends with, Eva, Vera, Betty and Barbara and the uploaded photograph was taken outside Spitfire Hut where the airwomen lived. The other photograph depicts four sergeants who were Ediths customers. Written on the photograph all the best from John, George, Daren and Paddy. In 1969 I joined the RAF was posted to Feltwell anmd was accommodated in the old sergeants block. If these photographs provoke any memories for you or you want a digital copy, contact me.
RAF Feltwell in 1943
Written by richard harveyMy two Aunts Edith and Doris joined the RAF in 1941 and were posted to RAF Feltwell in Norfolk. They both worked in the Sergeants Mess as waitresses. For them the transition from a sleepy seaside North Norfolk town to the action packed bomber station was an exciting experience. The feeling of achievment in being part of an enormous wartime effort. However, when some of the boys didn’t come back, the sergeants mess waitresses joined in the emotion of loss. This photograph was kept very safely by my Aunt Edith. The names on the photo are John, George, Darren and Roddy. They are all wearing a brevet so supposedly flying in action. I hope they got back safely and if anyone knows any more 0f these serviceman I should be delighted to hear from you. I will provide digital copy of this image on request via email.
