First off, thank you for all the congratulations yesterday, it makes me extra excited to get on with the planning!
Here’s some more vintage photo inspiration – this time from the UK National Archives flickr page. It’s quite a small collection, but some great stuff, and it gives you the story behind the photo too, which is nice!
MI5 staff member pictured on beach, 1944. This ordinary looking snapshot was taken and planted as part of a complex WWII intelligence plan known as Operation Mincemeat. The intention was that this photograph would make other documents secreted with it seem more authentic.
Children’s Overseas Reception Board (CORB) group bound for New Zealand, 1940. At the outbreak of World War Two, thousands of British children were sent to the Dominions (Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa) before attacks on shipping prematurely ended the scheme.
