Story was interesting and it was nice to read about families sticking together and getting through what must have been an awful time. Interesting to read about the struggle for women after and during the first world war.
I purchased size 5 and I usually take 5 1/2. Room enough for sock if you need them, but they are warm enough without. Have used them on beaches, walking in the rain and recently in a very muddy garden. Recommended for anyone who finds wellingtons too cold or too tight around the calf. Adjustable valro allows for tucking in your trousers too.
I chose this one because of the pictures one purchaser had provided with camera and equipment in place. Found it extremely useful on a recetnt week away as it also had room for tissues, suncream, cash and cards. No longer necessary to take loose stuff in pockets anymore. Very comfortable to wear and the rain cover came in handy too.
