Bel hommage pour toutes ces femmes.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Martine.
I believe that they relished the opportunity to show what they can do Tom.
Tom Wilson: I'm absolutely sure of that, Chad.

They were vital t the war effort. This is a fine memorial to them. How recent is this memorial, Tom?
Tom Wilson: Very recent, Alan - unveiled on 17th June.

Oh...lovely statue!

British Amazons...
Tom Wilson: A nice piece of work, I thought.
I do like the statue. Of course the women took over for the men. Life must go on.
Tom Wilson: Indeed - along with immigrants from the West Indies - whose descendents now all talk with strong Sheffield accents smile
The women of this country done us proud in both world wars in my opinion.
Tom Wilson: That's certainly true, Brian.
A fine statue, Tom, excellent title for it.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Frank - makes a change from all the modernist stuff that masquerades as art smile
