Interview with Hilda Ledger

Title

Interview with Hilda Ledger

Description

Before the war, Hilda Ledger lived in Berkley and worked in a big house. During the war, she registered to work, as required for her age, and was sent to Metrovic, a Lancaster bomber factory in Manchester. She describes working nine-hour shifts, five days a week, and using a checklist to ensure everyone was completing their work. Although she enjoyed living in Manchester, she was glad to return home. Ledger travelled to India to marry her husband, an intelligence officer, where they lived for a short time before returning and living in Manchester.
