“Give us your aluminium" cried Lord Beaverbrook, Minister for Aircraft Production, to the women of Britain, "and we will turn your pots and pans into Spitfires and Hurricanes, Blenheims and Wellingtons." And as one woman the housewives of Britain rushed to the 1,600 dumps hastily organized by the Women's Voluntary Services, not only with their pots, pans and kettles, but with aluminium hot water bottles, mince’s and dredgers, shoe-trees and hair curlers, cigarette cases, finger plates and door handles, motorcar registration plates and bicycle mudguards. One contribution to a Westminster dump was an artificial leg, and to Chelsea was brought a racing car with an aluminium body. Hundreds of tons of this light-weight metal have been collected within a few days. Lord Beaverbrook's appeal to housewives for aluminium goods brought an immediate and overwhelming response. Lady Lucas Tooth, in charge of the W.V.S. at Chelsea, is here seen receiving contributions at the Town Hall.
