Possible WASP member

Recommended Posts

Recent find. Musette bag with a wallet and ditty bag inside. Ran the number and found Margeret Prior from Milwaukee, WI, enlisted in 1943 as an Aviation Cadet. But there the trail goes cold.

I am not sure how complete this roster is, but I am not finding your Margeret Prior listed here.

Probably just wishful thinking on my part.

There was not a WASP named Margaret Prior. Plus, the WASP were never made a part of the regular Army.

 

She could have been a WAC assigned to the Air Corps. They were nicknamed Airwacs.

In past research, I have come across a few enlistment records for men that showed "Aviation Cadet." However, never found any evidence they trained as such or eventually flew. I believe it may be an erroneous code that is sometimes encountered.
