In A Young WAAF Hitchhiker's Guide to England, hitchhiker and author, Elizabeth Hutchings, takes the reader through her diaries from 1945-1947, when she did a considerable amount of hitchhiking around England.In her own description of the time, Elizabeth says, ‘Every moment that I was seeing England by hitchhiking, I felt really alive and free. I'm very glad indeed that I have kept these records and I only wish I had had a camera.'For those interested in England, hitchhiking and the period, this will be an interesting and fond read.

Elizabeth was born in Darlington in 1926, and now lives in Freshwater Bay on the Isle of Wight—not far from the Needles Radar Station where she was a radar operator. She and her husband, Richard Hutchings, returned from New Zealand in 1961 with their three Kiwi sons, Keith, Nigel and Simon. 2016 saw the celebration of thirty years of their Hunnyhill Publications. They had a bookshop in Shanklin and Winchfield Gardens in Newchurch. Elizabeth was the organizer of the pioneering Isle of Wight Social Services Home Sitting Service, supporting carers. She spent 30 years in Broadclyst creating her organic garden, and now lives with her son Simon.
