Found an interesting social history website on the type of work women did while the men were in the armed forces.

'Major Bigglesworth,' said von Stalhein coldly, 'there are times when I seriously wonder if you were created by the devil just to annoy me.'

Interesting site, tiff. Thanks for the link. I remember one of my friends in High School wanted to be an Aircraft mechanic because her aunt had been one during the War, but in the 1960s those options weren't open to girls - we were all indignant about the restrictions placed on us based on gender. We've come a long way since then :yay:
