Hi to all.

Intended as a bit of fun. Hope you enjoy viewing this little series taken a couple of weeks ago when Jen and I went to the WWII Military and 40ís weekend held at the Headcorn Airfield in Kent. With lots of re-enactments and people dressed up on the day it is assumed that this pretty lady was acting the part of a 40ís pin-up girl from that time in history.

The Pin-Up Girls of the 1940's played an important part in maintaining morale during World War II and it is thought the term ďpin-upĒ started back then when soldiers would "pin up" their idealized pictures of girls on their barracks and bunker walls, and sailors did the same to lockers and bulkheads with Betty Grable, Rita Hayworth, and Lana Turner being amongst the early favourites.

Thanks for looking, the clicks, comments, and mods.

Much appreciated.

Dave.

WOW! Lipstick & Dipstick I would had to have called this lovely set DaveSmile Very well taken, and not just images of the same pose taken from different angles. A very willing model too, you certainly know where to find them when you want to Dave. Smashing work mate, well done.

This charming young person is quite deliciously recorded by your trusty lens.

I'd say this young lady fits the part of a pin-up model very nicely. She is playing the part perfectly for you in all of these. I am particularly fond of the pose in v7.

Our paths don't cross as often any more on EPZ, but I hope you and Jen are well, and will have wonderful holidays.

Anne

I usually nit pic these re-enactment photos being of my era but can't find anything wrong at all . She is beautifully slim as we were with rationing ! Lovely dress and a very lucky girl to have silk stockings . My husband to be gave me 2 pairs of nylons as a christmas present in 1949 as his uncle was on the boats to America . Don't think her stockings had seams? Her lipstick and nail polish is fine , though I wasn't allowed to wear it. My mother said it was too "Fast" Smile Wonder what she would say now. Love version 1 a proper pin up girl xx
