    Default The final 15 Unaccounted WAAF

    There are only 15 Unaccounted WAAFs, this figure stood at 286 in April 2021.

    There is NO record of how these final girls died unless a 7 GRO death certificate is purchased. I recently floated the idea of sponsoring a WAAFs certificate on the Facebook " Women at War " page and I'm please to say that :

    Richard Noxa of the Czech Republic

    Andy Knock of Wolverhampton

    Wil Cox of the Czech Republic

    Jon Moore of Bristol and

    Eric Brun of California ( all chaps you note )

    Have generously sponsored between them, all 15 death certificates to complete the entire WAAF from 1939 to 1947. This is the first time all this information will be collated and available free in one location, and is now, in fact, a more complete record than the RAF itself has
