This shows Min hanging out the washing at 14 Dales Road Newport, the newly-weds first home. Stanley and Min's  Anderson shelter can be seen in the background.  At the entrance of he shelter Stanley painted rat- like caricatures of Mussolini and Hitler, but the council insisted I remove these in case it encouraged enemy bombing!
