During a visit to a jam factory near his church, (probably Tate and Lyle in Silvertown), Reverend Joseph Stevens shares a joke with factory workers in their air raid shelter. When the siren sounded, the women carried their trays of strawberries with them, in order to continue with their work in the shelter. The original caption states that "the vicar, some time previously, had arranged a concert of classical music in the factory and the girls want to know when he will arrange another. They raise money for his Sunday school treats by raffling a doll every year".
