NO. 3 WAAAF TRAINING DEPOT
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.
I'd like to thank Ian Jenkins, Dave Barlow and Lloyd A Halvorson for their assistance with this web page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
