From Good Evening, Mrs. Craven: The Wartime Stories of Mollie Panter-Downes


"All over the country, the declaration of war has brought a new lease on life to retired army officers, who suddenly find themselves the commanders of battalions of willing ladies who have emerged from the herbaceous borders to answer the call of duty."

From Letter from London, 3 September 1939
