Sheila Mills was a clever Norfolk girl who joined the WRNS in 1940 to escape secretarial work and her social climbing mother. After her death, her daughter, Vicky Unwin, found hundreds of letters, scrapbooks and mementoes that chart wartime adventures from a posting in Egypt through the invasion of Sicily to working amid the ruins of a defeated Germany. Pieced together from this memorabilia, Sheila’s story is a rare and fascinating record of the Second World War from a young woman's perspective.
