    Default WAAF WWII casualties

    Hi all, I am trying to make a brief overview about women services during WWII and I was able to find out quit a lot of information about WAAF, WRNS and ATS.
    I have the total numbers joined each service BUT I am unable to find out the total WAAF casulaties. I found 303 WRNS, 717 ATS but how many WAAF women died on active service during WWII?

    TIA

    There are at least

    730 WAAF

    306 WRNS

    968 ATS

    Could be more when you start searching Commonwealth forces, also not uncommon for someone to be known by two names and so have two entries.
