by Robert C Bertie
The battle of the sexes comes to a postwar RAF station when the ladies take on the men in a parade ground drill competition.

In this first book of his Bluebelles series Bob Bertie regales his readers with a story based at a fictional RAF station in the postwar years. A nostalgic novel full of believable characters who will be familiar to anyone who served in the RAF during those years.

Our story begins when the Air Chief Marshal of the RAF accepts a wager from the chiefs of staff of the Army and Navy for a squad of servicewomen from the RAF to compete with similar squads from the WRNS or the WRAC in a drill competition…

If he is to stand any change of winning his wager he will need to call upon the talents of a crack drill Sergeant. Enter Bill Barrett, Flight Sergeant who has made a name for himself by training a Flight of raw female WRAF recruits, calling themselves the BlueBelles, to outperform a Flight of their male counterparts in a drill competition at RAF Chatworth.

Can the Bluebelles come up with the goods again?
