We went back to the 40's at the Lacock Garden Centre 'Dig for Victory' weekend.
We were more appropriately dressed this time,
although I drew the line at authentic ladies' underwear!
We went with friends.
Tony hired his army outfit and found it heavy and hot. He was given an appropriate lapel badge from a stall holder and told how to wear his hat correctly! If we go again he is going to be de-mob!
Himself had a bit of car envy.
Can you blame him?
These delicious hats were on the back seat of the car.
We kept a look-out for Lucky Uncle George
but couldn't miss the Lancaster bomber fly-past.
There was some fabulous dancing
and an exercise display.
"I must, I must
improve my bust."
Phew! After that, a nice cup of tea
and then everyone watched a fashion show.
I was amused to see these pigtailed girls in their puff-sleeved, 'Peter Pan' collared and smocked bodice dresses.
I remember it well!

My funny smile is due to a cherry stone stored, hamster fashion. in the corner of my mouth!
