Hello all,
I'm researching for a new theatre production about the lives of the people, particularly the women, drafted in to build spitfires in the Salisbury factories from 1940 onwards. Does anyone have anecdotal evidence of the lives of the ordinary people who played such a huge part in the production of our great war planes? I need day to day details of how they lived. What their working day was like, experiences of living in digs, their social lives/ family lives. Are there any diary or journals published? (More generic journals of any aircraft factory workers would also be useful)Photos would also be interesting.
Any help forum members could give would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
David Haworth

I read a book by Cyril Russell,who was a Supermarine worker which was very good,can't remember if he was at Salisbury though.It was called "Spitfire Odyssey"(think I may have spelt that wrong).
