The folks on this forum who’ve customized their basement A&A bunkers and war rooms to give them a WWII feel – old radios, wartime posters and so forth – may get some extra inspiration from the item below. I like the part of the story which says that her only concession to the 21st century, a work-related smartphone, has an air raid siren as its ringtone. If Wittmann or Private Panic ever go visit her, a detailed report would be very interesting.

Simon Spark went to meet her.
