• Short Summary

    WAAFs in white learn about carving meat and cooking, then make meals for RAF men.

  • Description

    Titles read: "JUST LIKE MOTHER".

    Somewhere in Britain.

    WAAFs (Women's Auxiliary Air Force) wearing white overalls and headscarves march about a parade ground. We then see them in a classroom, where a man at a blackboard instructs them on carving meat. The WAAFs have their hands inspected on the parade ground.

    Several brief shots in a large kitchen show the women making cakes and pastries. Another woman puts potatoes in a special machine; they come out the other end without their skins! Nice shots of women dishing out food to RAF men at a mess hall or canteen (looks like stew with spotted dick and custard for pud - yum!).
