Radar Operator

  • Candida Adkins
  • Interview by: Jess Boydon


She was at aeronautic college for a year,

and war broke out.

So, she joined the RAF.

Then one day they were taken to a little house on an island.

It was all very secret and they were put

in tiny little cubicles.

All girls, was in little cubicles.

They were looking at a series of dots on a screen.

And it wasn't till the end of the week

when they've been doing on reporting

on the screen what they were told to report,

that some people were taken away and kicked out

and those that were staying

were then told that they were doing

a very secret operation which was radar.

So, my mother actually watched the Battle of Britain

as a little dots on the screen.
