Helen Mills is one of ‘The Many’ who played their part in victory. During the war, Helen Mills joined the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force and became a plotter at RAF Uxbridge following in the footsteps of the Many.
Plotters were the eyes and ears of the pilots in the skies. Mostly young women, their job was to gather radar data from around the country and plot the status of aircraft on a huge map in the Operations Room.
Buried deep underground in bunkers, plotters like Helen provided Fighter Command with the intelligence they needed to outwit the Luftwaffe.
