Description

 

Sewing and textile skills come in particularly useful for Wartime Make-Do-&-Mend or for adapting garments under clothes rationing: workshops can include rag-rugging, learning to knit or even darning.

Cooking now especially focuses on how to cope on the ration - and how to prepare some of the less familiar additions to the British Diet...

Mrs Gilkes is now a capable member of the WVS often called upon to despatch, accompany or greet school parties of evacuees.
