July 6 – “Women’s Airforce Service Pilots, 1942-1945”

 

Speaker – Pearl Judd
Following the 4th of July and last week’s program featuring club members who are WWII veterans, we welcome Pearl Judd, a WWII aviator, to speak of her amazing experiences. At the beginning of WWII a special, confidential group of women stepped up to deliver to locations around the world every kind of military aircraft being produced, from Spitfires to bombers. Due to the absence of men, a lady named Nancy Love gathered 28 women with flying experience to fill the manpower gap created by the war, creating the Women’s Airforce Service Pilots (WASP). Among those initial 28 women is Pearl Judd, our speaker today.
