DESCRIPTION:

During WWII British housewives were asked to save rags (not that there were many to be had, often a housewife’s reply would be, “we’re wearing them!”). Old woolen clothing was unpicked by volunteer knitting circles and remade into socks and jerseys for the troops; old sheets were turned into bandages. The Women’s Voluntary Services opened up shops where people could hand in old clothing, much needed for those whose houses had been bombed. Members of the Women’s Voluntary Service also mended clothes.
