Will there be rations and jobs in the factories. Can I wear overalls and a headscarf, red lipstick and have an affair with a beautiful but doomed RAF pilot?

Honestly, I can't remember what it is. But it keeps appearing.

Well I think I'll stay in this topic and be canny with the sugar and butter until someone explains.

It could be like the 1943 topic or something.

No men. That'd be something.

Pan and UQD will come in looking sheepish and talking loudly about their fallen arches.

Yes, the men will have to pace the floor and then have a port and a manly cigar when it's all over.

style threads could be centred around how to mix the gravy browning to achieve and even stockings look on one's legs.

We also need a swarthy GI who can bring us some nylons

DH and I got all wartime on saturday and had a great night out.
He looked great as a GI.

Oh bugger, and I wanted to be a spy behind enemy lines and look like Cate Blanchett.
