Notes / History Infantry and members of the Tank Corps assemble for Tank Week celebrations in Wimbledon.

Fundraising was a vital part of the domestic war effort, helping to maximise resources, purchase much needed equipment and maintain public morale. Local women were actively involved, staging jumble sales, running flag days and organising entertainment with a view to supporting wartime charities.
