You expect to be bombed at any minute, of course, one does realize they're still quite a distance away, but because of my father being in the army, I had to try and enlist straight away.

So, it was just this Women's Air Corps forms, and they gave us these grey dust coats, and we marched around there and practiced getting into, what's it called? Ferret holes.

The interesting people that we met, the Victorian ones, were so different from when we moved up to Queensland, quite different people indeed. Great, big ranging people there from the country, a different breed they looked too. So that was interesting seeing all these people that one hadn't met before. Quite different from the Victorian ones.
