Detail from Tea up on Pan!! A woman in a man’s world.
Acrylic on Daler canvas board, semi gloss varnish. 2002.
Original full size, 24 × 18″ SEE below.

During WW2 unmarried women had to join up do some work to help the war effort. Some joined the armed services,like Lilly did here, my aunt worked in a munitions factory, while my nan looked after her daughter. Her husband was still in the Channel Island under German Occupation.
You notice the little Waafy is chatting up the two officers, pilot and navigator, but to no avail, she married the Flight Sgt, tail gunner.
