Nick commented on Robert Gates's video The SpitFire Sisters
"It's quite a nice documentary, though every time I see it the footage of the actress in the spit wearing a black and inaccurate uniform irks me a bit"

Dose she really do the right thing ?

  • Kevin Walsh Got to be one of my favourites , the
    mythical Milford junction where it all began is Carnforth Station were it was filmed in 1945
    Its a steam railway visitors centre in Lancashire now and you can even stand under the clock were they meet every Thursday afternoon and have tea and cake in the tea room at the same table
    And I did :)

  • Georgie H-B I love this film. Does she do the right thing? In those days probably. It seems a tame film today, but when it was made this was quite risque.

Norman Wright commented on Georgie H-B's post WVS Uniform in Military Uniforms - Allied
"Even as a man who would not be wearing the WVS kit I found this interesting, the amount of detail that comes from the research is amazing.
Bookmarked for future reference and passing on to friends :)"

I thought I add this link for all those people who are interested in WVS reenactment. I have seen all sorts of uniforms reported emphatically by the wearer as being a genuine WW2 dress/suit or a faithful reproduction. I have also seen arguments over this nearly coming to blows!

The tweed suit gave way to an all green woo…
