With her husband at work, and her children at school, Mrs Suter begins the day's chores. This photograph shows her buying a loaf of bread from the baker, Mr. Alderton, who sells his wares from the back of his bread van. This photograph was taken in the summer of 1940.
Over two million American servicemen passed through Britain during the Second World War. In 1944, at the height of activity, up to half a million were based there with the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). Their job was to man and maintain the vast fleets of aircraft needed to attack German cities and industry.
