On the 70th anniversary of VE-Day we salute the 173 men and women who lost their lives in ATA service.  Proportionately men died in larger numbers than the women who suffered only 17 fatalities, including Janice Harrington who was killed with Dora Lang on 2 March 1944 when their Mosquito crashed while carrying out a go-around at RAF Odiham.  Both are buried at All Saints’ Cemetery in Maidenhead.  RIP.
