Bulli

Women of the Illawarra who served in WW2

The following 28 Women were Born and/or Resident in Bulli at the time of  their Enlistment in WW2 – this is information was sourced from the Australian WW2 Nominal Roll.

About half enlisted in the Army, half in the RAAF, but only one in the Navy. A number in the Army were Nurses and Officers. The majority of Illawarra women in the RAAF held the rank of Aircraft Woman.

One Bulli woman, Lillian Bunker, who was in the RAAF was with the Flying Boat Repair Shop – which was probably not so surprising given the Bunker family of Bulli long involvement in the automotive service station and repair business.
