There are two brilliant 1940s things in this outfit – an English-made 1940s tweed jacket and a leather wartime handbag, both in fantastic condition and both from my favourite vintage shop, Ollie Vee’s in Leighton Buzzard.
The jacket was one of my first and is still one of my best ever purchases from Ollie Vee’s and was a bargain at just £40! Once we get more normal spring weather both items will make regular appearances in my Bletchley Park tour guiding outfits.
