For all three men, such conditions as post-traumatic stress disorder are a struggle to acknowledge, let alone address. This isn’t the first documentary examination of post-military life, but it’s one of the most acute and unvarnished. All of them – even Wilkie, as reality gradually intrudes – offer frank and clear-eyed assessments of their situations, and, while never less than respectful, there’s none of the ‘brave boys’ tubthumping that can sometimes mar such films. A hugely worthwhile addition to the plethora of Remembrance Day programming.
Petershams Millinery Supplies
Easily spotted by its bright orange door, you won't miss Petershams Millinery Supplies at The Artworks, Elephant & Castle's equivalent to Boxpark in Shoreditch. Founded by Californian Michelle Osborne, this is a place you'd come to get everything you could need to make a hat, fascinator or elaborate headband. Rolls of fabric line the walls, crowded with feathers, trims, bases, pins, combs, veiling and all kinds of decoration. There's also a box of vintage hats – for viewing purposes only – in case you're after a little inspiration.
Venue says: “Spring is here! Pop in store for pretty pastels and florals for your hat making needs.”
