Two soldiers knitting in wartime, 31 October 1939. 'If you drop in at 'The Peggy Bedford' on the Great West Road in Longford, Middlesex, the landlady will ask you to knit. She will hand you knitting needles with your drink, and the idea is that you knit a few squares between the orders. These squares are later made up into clothes for soldiers and evacuated children. Two customers in uniform busily knit after obtaining their drinks'. Photograph by Saidman.
