Waafs at work monitoring radar blips

For the pilots flying their fighters that summer, the most important voice they were to hear was that of the Controller responsible for guiding them in the right direction around the sky so that they would intercept the enemy. Behind the controller and contributing to his instructions were the WAAFs monitoring the blips on their radar sets and then the WAAFs pushing their billiard cues around the plot laid out at Bentley Priory. Then, at 11 Group, it was the Controller who gave the pilots their course to steer. All were part of an integrated team.
