Winifred Phillips was born in Ilford, Essex, in 1926. Sent to a convent boarding school, she trained as a nursery nurse and met George Wheeler, a 19-year-old RAF trainee wireless operator. The pair fell in love and spent a happy year together, only to say goodbye in 1943. They kept in touch but he went missing in 1944 and nobody knew what happened to him. Determined to see something of the world, Winifred joined the Auxiliary Territorial Service in 1948 and enlisted in the Women's Royal Army Corps a year later. Her story offers insight into the lives of female service personnel in the 1950s and '60s.
