Eira had to leave grammar school because of the war and she joined the WAAFs. Then she got married and had children. She began in Mettoys in c.1960, packing in the warehouse to earn extra money. Christmas time was very busy, with sales of toys. She was not a member of a union. There were thousands of women in the factory. She enjoyed the comradeship. Her husband was in a supervisory role in Mettoys too. She left to work in the DVLA.
