Hello all!

I hope someone can help me out
I'm new to this place and was wondering if anybody could point me in the direction of finding a full uniform for an NCO? I'd rather not have a high rank, haha

Any info would be great on where to find any parts of a uniform, info or what to buy/what not to etc.

Thank you muchly!

Hi Sammie,

just a nod-during the war it's WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force). If you have a look through the Women's uniform pages you'll find loads of info and where to go (and where to avoid!)
It can be confusing, but if you're not with a group please sing out on here before you part with any cash as there's some crap out there, lol!
Welcome by the way.

(Two books you should try and get- 'We all wore blue' by Sqdn Ldr Beryl Escott and for pictoral reference, 'Women's uniform in colour' by Martin Brayley and Richard Ingram.

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]
