Patience 'Boo' Brand puts meat pies in to cook in the gas oven in the mobile canteen, so that they are piping hot when served to shelterers, while Rachel Bingham holds the tray. They are both members of the Womens' Voluntary Service and are preparing the canteen before they leave the WVS Canteen Service depot to supply refreshments to shelterers emerging for work after a night in the shelter, London, 1941.
