It is 6:30am, and builders of the 'Blitz Repair Squad' prepare for the day ahead in the bedroom of their billet in London's Onslow Square. Six men share a room in a large house on the Square, which had originally been intended for use by refugees from Normandy. Five men can be seen here getting dressed and ready for work, including one fastening his shoes, and another putting on his braces. There is one man, however, who is still in bed!
