Tea With A National Treasure - The Joy Lofthouse Story


After discovering a story on Ops last year about the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), Forces Radio's Amy Casey set out to learn more and in doing so, was fortunate enough to spend time with one of the few remaining “Spitfire Girls”. 

Amy went to meet national treasure Joy Lofthouse at her home in Cirencester. Joy's stories of her days with the ATA were incredible.  

To mark the Battle of Britain on Forces Radio BFBS, we aired unique stories of the heroines of the Second World War whose contributions to the war effort were nothing short of exceptional.
