Women factory workers go full steam to make sure troops on the Western Front have a little tradition at Christmas.

Non-Fiction 1916 1 mins


Full steam ahead at the pudding factory!

Though the canned puddings look more like ammunition than nutrition, the 1/2lb of pudding per soldier must have been a welcome treat.
