Doris Manley (of Southampton) was surrounded by family in celebration of receiving a commemorative pin for 'Women in the Armed Forces' ... she was recognized for 70 years

The Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary of Branch #155 in Southampton held a special tea party at the Southampton Care Centre for Doris Manley on Wednesday, May 18th (2016).

The occasion was to recognize her contribution during  WWII and her 70 year membership in the Southampton Legion and 55 years in the Ladies Auxiliary.

Several members of her family attended the special occasion, along with members of the Auxiliary.

Manley may appear to be a diminutive person today but, in 1941 at the age of 20, the spunky young woman travelled to London, Ontario to join the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Before 1941, most women in the Armed Forces had to be a nurse, Manley however, became a radio operator.
