World War II Workcards:
We have a series of ready-printed and laminated workcards based on the story of the development of the Bristol Blenheim Bomber, from its prototype as a fast business transport through its wartime active service and training role.  The set covers social changes such as women working in factories, ARP Wardens, WVS, Home Guard, and the role of the Commonwealth Countries.  Colourful cartoon illustrations brighten up each card.  The Aero Collection is currently restoring the aircraft featured in the story.

Samples:  WS16 Women Factory Workers    WS18 The Home Guard       also available on CD.
