British Army uniforms, 1933. Creator: Unknown

British Army uniforms, 1933. '"Tommy's" New Uniform [left]: The tight "soldierly" collar is replaced by an open-necked shirt: the gleaming buttons....are discarded; the flat pockets of the tunic have turned to "sloppy" pleated patch pockets: the "spiral" puttees have given way to canvas leggings and the tight "pantaloons"...are almost plus fours. To crown everything, the hard-peaked forage cap is replaced by a soft helmet'. From "The Pageant of the Century". [Odhams Press Ltd, 1933]

'Physical Training at a Recruits' Depot', c1943. Creator: Cecil Beaton

'Physical Training at a Recruits' Depot', c1943. The Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF), whose members were referred to as 'WAAFs', was the female auxiliary of the British Royal Air Force during World War II. Its members did not serve as aircrew, but although they did not participate in active combat, they were exposed to the same dangers as any on the home front working at military installations. Among their duties were: crewing of barrage balloons, catering, meteorology, radar, aircraft maintenance, transport, communications duties including wireless telephonic and telegraphic operation. At its peak strength, in 1943, the number of WAAFs (members of the force) exceeded 180,000, with over 2,000 women enlisting per week. From "Wings On Her Shoulders", by Katharine Bentley Beauman, Late Fight Officer W.A.A.F. [Hutchinson & Co Ltd, London, New York, Melbourne, c1943]

Woman in cigarette pants, c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

Woman in cigarette pants, c1950. Fashion illustration. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time.
