Issue six of the Worker & War-Front Magazine shines a light on how photographed letters, or ‘airgraphs’, are sent to forces serving abroad, helping to boost morale on the war front. Whilst on the home front, factories remained in full swing, producing barrage balloons and dinghies for the RAF. The episode ends with a traditional Welsh choir paying tribute to the workers of Soviet Russia.
