Willa Walker blazed the trail for RCAF airwomen
In honour of International Women’s Day, March 8, we bring you the story of Willa Walker, who blazed a trail for women in the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War.
Wilhelmina Magee was born in Montreal on April 3, 1913, one of four children of bank president Allan Magee and the former Madeline Smith of Saint John, New Brunswick. The Magees lived in Montreal, but the children enjoyed spending summers at the Smith family’s rental cottage in Saint Andrews, New Brunswick.
