My Grandmother, Margeurite Lydia Barnard nee Bigler (b 1920), was in the WAAF during second world war.
She came over from Switzerland, got stuck here because of the war and ended up marrying (m 1942) my Grandfather John James Barnard (b 1920).
She was one of only three swiss nationals in the English forces and was a barrage balloon operator.
I would love to find out more about her and the job she did.
