About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

April 6 - E is for Edna








This lady is my late mother-in-law and she served in World War 2.




Edna enlisted on 28 September 1942 at the No 2 Recruiting Centre, Sydney.

She trained as a Telegraphist, in Morse Code.
Her postings were:
No 1 Engineering School, Ascot Vale 14-2-42.
No 1 Depot, Richmond, 13-3-43
RAAF Station, Richmond, 22 Mar 1944
Air Defence Headquarters, Sydney 21-1-45
No 2 Personal Depot, Bradfield Park, 11-12-45, Discharge.
Mum never left Australian shores and it was only in later years that she opened up about where she had served and what she had done. It made for a very interesting discussion.
 
Thank you for your service.
Lilian
