Joined up on 9 March 1942, my eighteenth birthday. Two weeks later interviewed in Birmingham, medical and number. Told to go home and await instructions. Finally called to Air Crew Receiving Centre. (Aceyarsesee). At Lords Cricket Ground on
23 November 1942. Six weeks in London, drill, drill, more drill. Uniform tailored,!!. Lectures etc, before ITW in Newquay on 8 January 1943. So even in wartime there were delays. Happy days!
