Issue seven opens with workmen travelling to an undisclosed location in the country, where evacuated statues are kept safe from falling Luftwaffe bombs. We then move to a home front factory that has succeeded in winning a competition established to celebrate 25 years since the founding of the USSR, before closing with an item on a lend lease scheme run by British farmers.
