Bill Wilson instructing Sally Hooks, an acrobatic dancer with Bertram Mills circus, in the use of a hacksaw at the Beaufoy Institute, Black Prince Road, Lambeth. Bill was a teacher at St Andrew's School, Roupell Street and because of his technical qualifications in metalwork, was instructed to assist the Ministry of Labour with the training of women in general engineering practice. The course lasted 6 weeks and the women were urgently required to fill labour shortages in the munitions factories.
