This photograph shown with kind permission of Mrs Margaret Cox shows her and other ladies who worked in the canteen on the camp during WW2. In her own words....
'This photograph was taken outside the civilian canteen around 1942-1945 although the work was hard we had some great times. During the morning we would go over to the Offices and Fabric Shop with a trolley with tea and coffee for the workers, then at lunch time meals were served. I worked in a small room come shop off the canteen selling different chocolates and sweets when available as there was still rationing. I met my husband while working in the canteen. He was an MT driver working at 25 MT Hartelbury. He used to come to Cardington regularly. We moved and came to live in Shortstown in Oct 1955 - he got a transfer from Hartelbury"
Thank you Mrs Cox!
