BLITZ REPAIR SQUAD'S LONDON CAMP 1944

A view of London's Onslow Square, showing the ablution and mess huts which have been constructed in the road to house the builders (groups of whom can be seen around the Square) of the 'Blitz Repair Squad'. This Squad is a team of builders who have come to London from various parts of the country to help repair damage caused by V1 flying bombs. The camp was originally intended for use by refugees from Normandy, but is used instead by the building teams, who are billeted in many of the houses around the Square.
