Women’s Auxiliary Air Force Recruitment Poster


Poster featuring two women in uniform, one of whom is wearing a mask, in front of a flag, and Hebrew writing along the top and bottom.
This Hebrew-language version of a standard WAAF (Women’s Auxiliary Air Force) recruitment poster urges Jewish women in Palestine, then under British Mandate rule, to “serve in the WAAF with the men who fly.” In 1942, the British began recruiting Jews and Arabs for the Palestine Regiment to aid the fight against Nazi Germany and its allies. The regiment had separate Jewish and Arab battalions.
