'Rough turning at the six-pounder factory - and this is Miss Donaghey on the job. Her previous experience of "filing" was as a clerk with British Airways.' A woman works on the production line in an armaments factory - the contemporary caption uses the word 'filing' as a pun to describe both her part in the manufacture of gun components, and what she did in her previous office job.
