to leave from Edmonton for training in Toronto. She would
return to Alberta to work at No. 4 Training Command in Calgary
before being posted across the country. Jessie Stewart was
among the first group to leave for training from British

(SFTS) in Fort Macleod. Mary Sadler was the first woman
hired to work in the radio room at No. 2 Air Observer School

unique, and, perhaps less known, experiences.
