Great pictures Stick. I was born in 1942 so I don't remember the Vultee plant making airplane wings but I do remember the plant. I had a friend that worked there.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Rick, women played a VERY big role in the war effort. So many of the young men were fighting the war.

I was young at the time but I remember that time well. We used to lay on our backs in the pasture and watch the p-38s practice dog fights over head, and we knew every plane model that flew in the war. Those gals were the best looking gals ever, and had little to no make up.

Yup, you guys lived the dream and didn't even know it . Now things have gone for crap and the divorce rate is ten times more . And let's not even mention the behaviour of these single parent kids.
I think people had family values back in your day

It has already been said, but the women did a huge amount of work during the war. Probably even more so in England.

I was just a newborn baby in England at the time these pics were taken. Mum worked as a telephone operator beginning at the onset of war in 1939. Each operator had to remember a minimum of 20 different telephone numbers off by heart. A supervisor would call out a name and an operator would call out the number. It saved precious seconds.

America didn't join in until 1942. Lost my dad in that damned skirmish.

The quality of those pictures is easily the equal of modern day digital shots I think.

Yes, and NO TV. Look at the drivel that gets pumped into the kids heads these days. That's half the trouble.

Yes I blame tv and online gaming for a lot of it . Dang I can't wait to get my computer room functional again so I can start gaming again
