Girl munition workers at their lathes in a Scottish mill, c1914. By June 1917, roughly 80% of the weaponry and ammunition used by the British army during World War I was being made by munitionettes. With men recruited for the armed forces, the industrial workforce changed. Over 600,000 women took on previously male-dominated roles in industry during the war, working alongside men in reserved occupations. Women in the industry were paid on average less that half of what the men were paid. From ‘The Manchester Guardian: History of the War’, Vol. II.-1914-15., 1915.

The Beatles performing at Caird Hall in Dundee, 1964.
The Beatles in Scotland.
Revealed after 44 years, the fab night when the Beatles rocked Dundee.
Until recently, it was thought that the night the Beatles rocked Dundee had been recorded only in the memories of a few hundred lucky fans.
But now newly discovered footage of the Fab FourÕs 1964 concert at the cityÕs Caird Hall has come to light, showing them belting out such early hits as Love Me Do and She Loves You.
And despite being shot without sound by an amateur cameraman, the few minutes of black and white film uncovered in a local libraryÕs storeroom, have been hailed as a major find.
Yesterday, Janet McBain, curator of the Scottish Screen Archive, said: ÔItÕs the only surviving footage of the Beatles in Scotland. You get a very strong sense from the audience of Beatlemania, of girls getting quite hysterical.Õ
Now the footage is to be included in a new documentary called Rare and Unseen: The Beatles, which is due for release on DVD in April.
Shot in October 1964, the Caird Hall film captures the excitement of the group playing live.
