Mrs Belami, Mrs Jolliffe and Miss Allan at work as inspectors, checking that the rivets being sorted in this makeshift workshop are being done so correctly. The work is being carried out by 45 part-time war workers in what was once the billiard room of a house owned by Mrs Allen in Guildford, Surrey. The rivets are being sorted for use in aircraft factories.
