Mrs Calloghan gives cocoa to the team of builders who are repairing the damage to her London home following a V1 attack. The original caption states that she had just returned from evacuating her children to the country when the attack occurred and, although she has no windows and a damaged roof, she is not moving out of her home. The builders are part of the 'Blitz Repair Squad', a team of builders who have come to London from various parts of the country to help repair such damage.
Builders are given cocoa as they make repairs to a house in London damaged by a V1 Flying Bomb in 1944.
