Objects of desire

Living History

Here are a couple of things belonging to my mother who was a VAD in Quetta in 1942. and a WVS canteen manager at Dimapur in 1945. The first is a belt buckle which I assume was the local version of the traditional nurses belt, but perhaps was used with the WVS uniform as well. if anyone knows for sure, it would be interesting

Also a powder compact given to her in 1945 by my father shortly after they met. Note the chindit motif. The inscription is amusing!bandc-1.jpg
