NO. 3 WAAAF TRAINING DEPOT
KARRINYUP, WA
DURING WW2

No.3  WAAAF Training Depot was formed at Karrinyup, Western Australia on 24 April 1942 with an establishment of 4 officers, 40 airwomen and 100 trainees who would pass through the training programme each month.

No. 3 WAAAF Training Depot was disbanded on 24 March 1945.

Lake Karrinyup Golf Club was taken over by the RAAF and used as a WAAAF recruit centre. I've assumed this is the same establishment as No. 3 WAAAF Training Depot. RAAF pilots would regularly "beat up" the Golf Club to entertain the girls.
