Here is a collection of tales told by wives of RAF personnel, often hilarious, always witty and touching, spanning the period from the Cold War and the 1950s to the present.

These women reveal, in their authentic voices and colourful portraits, what life as an RAF wife is really like-when a whole family can be required to up-sticks and move with almost no notice, when rank pulls favour even at home, when things go comically wrong during a royal visit, and also the grimmer realities of being in the services, when an unexpected phone call can mean a parent is suddenly off to war and won't be around to read a bedtime story.
