Even during the worst times in our lives, people find a way to see the good. Love and romance has no boundaries and one such case is that of our Secret Factory worker Joan. She was a young girl who went to work at Chattis Hill where Spitfires sent from Salisbury were being final assembled in the two secret factories hidden in the woods.  Joan was very taken by a certain young lad working at the other end of the factory so she would find whatever excuse to make sure she’d be around there to have a chat. In the end the manager of the factory decided that for the good of the war effort, it would be easier to put the two young people together. They were married and had a beautiful life together. Here she is telling us the lovely little story during a rest period when we were filming her interview. She had so many amazing stories to tell about the time!
