This photo of my father is c1942. Note the white gloves and the hat. It was designed to resemble the original flying helmet and it consisted of a leather skull cap trimmed with black rabbit fur. The helmet also featured an ostrich feather plume which was connected at an RAF badge. This helmet was never popular and junior officers were eventually permitted to wear the service dress hat on full dress occasions.

The girls' grandmother (b1850) lived with them and had been a seamstress. She made all their knickers (not visible!) in the style of her own girlhood, with a flap that buttoned onto the waistband - this resulted in "accidents" for the younger girls who found the fastenings difficult. The old lady died in 1938.
