Interviewed April 2003
Roxie Remley graduated from Darlington High School in 1937 and went on to business college in Wisconsin. She joined the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps (WAAC) in August 1942. After graduating from officer candidate school, she was assigned to a top secret mission in Washington D.C. She then volunteered to go overseas and was stationed in England in 1944. While she was serving in London, Remley met Queen Elizabeth II. She left the service in 1945. In 1982, Remley and her commanding officer, Georgia Watson, returned to England and were granted another audience with the Queen. On seeing a photo from their first meeting in 1945, Elizabeth remarked, "I remember that hat. It was the only one I had."
