Default Help Please with Information re a WAAF

I am trying to help a good friend find out anything he can about WW2 F/O Charlotte Harvey, WAAF. The number on her dog tag is 7251.

Is there any way to find out about this lady and/or what medals she may have received.

All help is appreciated.

Terry

Thank you Mike!

Now I know why he was asking me about it. He told me he had her picture and dog tag, but not where he got them.

I have tried to get him to join he forum as he does collect RAF, but he hasn't jumped in yet. Sorry for that because this forum is a GREAT place to meet collectors who share your interest, learn and make some new friends.

Thanks again,

Terry
