Muriel Gane was just eighteen when war was declared. This book tells the story of Muriel's experiences with the Women's Auxiliary Air Force, her journey from the new recruit whose primary obsession was how well the blue of the uniform suited her, to a resolute and hard-working young woman with a wide social life and successful air-force career.
Muriel Gane Pushman was the eldest daughter in the Gane family. She is now a widow, lives in Worcestershire and has eight grandchildren. One of her granddaughters is currently serving with the armed forces in Iraq.
