Does the Wallis and Linnell clothing company
still exist? I am an author and historian and I have recently interviewed
a lady who worked at this factory in 1939 and 1940 when productions was
for uniforms for the WAAF.
Your site is very interesting - great work on
14 March 2007
pretty sure Wallis and Linnell donít exist any more. Interestingly though,
I had a quick scour on the internet and came across an advert for a W&L
suit from a vintage clothing store. Wonder where it was made!
lady you interviewed work in the Cottingham Factory? If so, Iíd be very
interested in putting the information up on the Cottingham History
website, with a credit to you of course.
Thanks for that. I will email you later, a
transcript of my interview with her although of course this is copyright
and must not be reproduced other than on your web site. Yes, Win did work
in the Cottingham factory before joining the fire service.
Very best wishes,
