Scope and content

During WWII many ladies from the ATA flew many types of aeroplanes, delivering them for the men to fly on active service and sometime acting as a taxi service to bring back ladies who had done the delivering. Two of those ladies were Molly Rose and Mary Ellis. In March 2017 Mary helped plant a rose tree at RAF Brize Norton in honour of the work of these two local ladies. Molly died in 2016. The ATA ladies flew 309,111 missions and the men could not have done their part without these brave ladies. Molly Rose delivered 400 Spitfires, 550 other aircraft and 47 Wellington bombers to RAF bases.
