  3. I been looking at my parents marriage certificate and notice that my mother was a riveter during the war then a few weeks ago I was watching Flog it and Paul Martin was talking to two women and they was talking about there time working in the steelworks during the war and what happened was that if you was single or married and no children then you had to go to the labour exchange and given two choices you could work in the steelworks or being a land girl most took working in steel works and it was hard work but if you asked about what you was making they just keep your nose out and most women did not ever talk about it is there anything on women working in the steel works
