Gunner Girls and Fighter BoysBook - 2016
May Lloyd's father calls her his homing pigeon because of her uncanny knack of navigating her way around the streets of South London - even in pitch darkness. It is a gift that will save her life when the Blitz destroys nearly everything that she holds dear. With her home in ruins, May joins the ATS - the women's branch of the British Army - and becomes a gunner girl, operating 'ack ack' guns against the Luftwaffe. Meanwhile, her sister, Peggy, makes a daring bid to escape a stifling marriage and find love and freedom amid the heady chaos of war.
