    baz, Hi,
    WAAF early Oct 1940 is the best I can do. The Block is 880000-897999. Start Date 1 Mar 1939. End Date 1 May 1941. Problem is that both dates are not certain, and the calculation(s) rely upon the issue being regular and in sequence. WAAF numbers may have been issued in several places - Oh, and a War started!!!!!!!!!

    The best I can do, is some point during the first 6 months of 1940. If I stuck my neck out I'd say April - June of that year.
