Sopley GCI Final - Fighter Control room. The WAAF to the left is listening to a Sector Liaison Line. She notes airborne times of fighter aircraft and passes this information to the indicator board (tote). As fighter aircraft become airborne they are taken over by the controller. This room overlooked the reporting room through the windows on the left..
