Beagle started the thread drift, so - in the mid-sixties there were no WRAF at Cranwell, on the specious grounds that there was no accommodation suitable. However their airships decided that the matter should be investigated further. The Tower was about as far as one could get from the rest of the working station, so there was a meeting to consider introducing WRAF in ATC. A meeting was held to discuss the matter, and all was going well until it was pointed out that there were only two loos in the tower, "officers" and "airmen". "That's OK" said SATCO cheerily, "we'll put a tent outside". "But Squadron Leader", said the Command WRAF Officer, "my girls need a permanent erection!"

I'll get my coat
