THERE IS so much news at the moment recalling D-Day and the various groups involved - the Land Army Girls, for instance.
But I do not recall any special commendation for the women who worked a long day in factories, making parts for tanks and jeeps getting ready for D-Day.
They would then return home to face a night in a bomb-proof shelter. D-Day holds a memory for me that will never fade.
The usual noise and confusion was suddenly halted.
'Music While You Work' was stopped and in total silence a solemn voice advised that we had landed! D-Day had begun!
The total silence was soon broken by the many staff who had husbands and sons involved.
I am sure there are plenty of women who will remember the above in many factories.
This one was in Harrow Road.
