School uniforms

“At school our winter uniform (in the school color of Navy, with touches of red and orange), consisted of a white blouse, a navy wool jumper (pullover sweater), a navy wool sleeveless pinafore, dark knitted knee socks, sturdy leather mary jane shoes, a navy blue flannel blazer with the school logo on the pocket in red, and a navy wool beret also embroidered with the logo. For rain we wore a dark blue mac over everything. In summer we wore pale blue cotton knee-length belted shirtwaist dresses, covered by the blazer or the pullover as needed. Not exactly Mod London attire, but practical and neat!”  Lisa Baker, an American whose family lived in London in the early 1960’s
