Lis, the booklet actulaay addresses stockings:"Take plenty of stockings. Don'r count on finding your favorite brand in foreign shops. A good rule is at least one pair of everyday stockings for every week you're to be gone.. Add to this three pairs of sheer ones for evening."
That's priceless information- no doubt they wore stockings most of the time as well:)I remember my Godmother seeing me off in the 1980s on a long-haul flight mentioning how when she travelled a lot in the 1930s you always your best clothes- but there again they got more legroom those days! Lis
