The Second Edition of THE ORIGINALS is HERE!

Released Fall 2017, the Second Edition features a new version of the old cover — I call it the old cover in Hi Def — and numerous updates, particularly in the biography section. When it was first published in 2001, eight of the original 28 WAFS were still alive. Now all of them are gone.

The debut of the Second Edition celebrated the 75th anniversary of the formation of the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron — the WAFS — by Nancy Love and Col. William H. Tunner. The date was September 10, 1942.
