Thank you to Alistair Wilson who wrote:

425th Division

"I've been looking through my old photos and found some of my mother, Isabella 'Ella' Hush, when she served during WWII.

I think that it was in Edinburgh but I can't be sure.  This group photo indicates it was 425th Division, but I have been unable to find any information about it or where my mother was stationed.

I would certainly appreciate any information regarding the division that you can find."

WAAF Training Course

425d

"Alistair Wilson who wrote 'Comment 1' above is, I think, my brother-in-law Bill Hush's cousin.

 I would think that the '425d' is not a division number, but a WAAF training course number.**  There aren't any officers in the group, only NCOs.

I wouldn't know where this photograph would have  been taken, but it would have perhaps been a fairly basic course.  I believe it's possible to get hold of service records but don't know how.  Maybe someone else hereabouts will know how."

**  On 28 Jun 1939, the WAAF (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) was created.

      On 1 Feb 1949, it was renamed the WRAF (Women's Royal Air Force)

"Re Alisair's query in Comment 1, regarding the WAAF Intake Number 425. I would agree that this photo looks exactly like an Intake at a RAF Entry Level course.

The address for personal records or assistance is as follows:

Royal Air Force Service Records,

RAF Disclosures Section

Room 221b, Trenchard Hall, RAF Cranwell,

Sleaford,

Lincs. NG34 8HB

England UK.

It might help if Alistair could add any further information, eg Name, Initials, Service Number or date. More info that might help can be found by "Googling" RAF Service Records.
