    Lord Norbury does war work at a Surrey aircraft factory.

  • Description

    Surrey.

    Several shots of Lord Norbury doing war work at a Surrey aircraft factory as part of the First World War effort. He stands at a machine wearing mechanic's dungarees and a flat cap. Other workers are seen in the background.

    We then see Lord Norbury taking a break from the machinery. He stands at the door of the factory, wiping his hands on a rag. He is apparently being paid 7d an hour for this work.

    World War One; home front; industry; nobility, labour.
