    Hi Tim the WAVES uniform was a bonus item. I was at a sale and bought a USMC jacket the lady told me she also had her mothers jacket so I had to keep them together.
    Hi Ade I just looked at Lez's items . Gary

    Hi
    I am Charlotte Hislop's second cousin. I live in Britain and never met any of her family. I knew she had been in WAVES and so it was fascinating to find this photo today when I was doing some more research on that branch of the family for my family tree. Pat

    Thats great news Pat and how good is that for the Forum! I would really like to know more about about her and perhaps maybe see a photo of her too. The WAVES all looked so glamourous in their smart uniforms. I found these few items of Charlottes at a small militaria show at Foxland Farm a few years ago and i just liked them so its great to make contact with a relative. Best Regards, Tim.
