On 1st June 1941, the government of the United Kingdom began rationing clothing. As with many events throughout the Second World War, the reality in Northern Ireland was a little different to that of Great Britain. Historian Rachel Sayers joined us to share her passion for 20th-century Irish dress, to talk about women in uniform, GIs and their nylon stockings, and all things fashionable in wartime Northern Ireland.
