2 mystery WW2 New Zealand WAAF ladies

Last week I purchased on trademe from a second hand goods store in Geraldine, 2 framed portraits of women who were serving in the Airforce in WW2. The hat insignia looks that of the New Zealand WAAF's [Woman's Auxiliary Air Force] and the arm flying badges confirm they were in the airforce.

There appears to be no identifying information on the photos except for the second photo - however this is sparse and photo looks to be to Jack from Marge.





"To Jack with best w... from Marge[?]"



Do you recognise these women? I'd love to be able to give them back to their families.

  1. Hi Sandy,
    Thank you for your post on our website.
    Below is a link to a Pdf file with information on contacting & researching Air Force personel.
    I'm not sure if it will be of any help to you, but, given the little you have to go on, anything is a possibility...
