    I'm always amazed at the photos of soldiers in WWII over how old they look. For men in their early 20s, many of these guys look two decades older.

    I would say that's probably due to some pretty hard living as kids. Living through the Gread Depression, the amount of manual labor kids had to do to help around the house or farm and I think the majority of the US families were still farming.

    She's laughing there because that's Prince Phil, dressed up as a Guardsman trying to fool here. She saw through it.

    Womens Auxiliary Territorial Service in WW2. Mechanic and Truck Driver.

    (The posh version of Rizzo - for the MASH fans. I'm no defender of the monarchy. But at 18 years old, she put on a uniform and did her bit.)
