Ha-ha, Adam, I haven't forgotten about you. Actually, you're in the same situation as I am: reading Battle from its humble beginnings. Perhaps you should proffer your opinions. Although my posts have tended to dominate this thread, by no means do I regard this thread as my personal blog. Any other member is more than entitled to chip in with their take on Battle's history. More the merrier, I say. Feel free, Adam, or anybody else. Let's celebrate Battle's history while we're still alive to do so. Any takers... :)

A while back, I commented on Battle Stations, Battle's letter page, through which readers recounted a forefather's quirky tale from both world wars. On re-reading Battle's 17th May 1975 cover-dated issue, wherein Battle Stations began in earnest, I discovered that the first "true" star letter of the week was actually dedicated to the fairer sex, posted below. And why not? Women played an integral role during the Second World War, working in factories throughout the country to manufacture armaments and other essential equipment - a most valuable asset that bolstered the war effort.
