They thought it was an aircraft carrier … and everyone was panicking and all the services turned out. One of the men grabbed me on the shoulder and said 'come on girl, what are they saying now?' And I said 'well excuse me sir but I think the Three Kings Islands are up there, but it hasn’t been drawn on the map'.

It was quite frightening at times, because sometimes the Americans wouldn’t turn on their IFF (Identification, friend or foe) and we didn’t know who they were. It could have been the Japanese. We got quite angry with the Americans sometimes.

There was an officer and he said 'you look a nice little WAAF, would you like to do a special course I’m doing? It’s highly secret and you look like you can keep a secret.'
