Production. Parachute making. What a boomerang these shroud lines may turn out to be! Made partly from Japanese silk, they are being layed out for marking and cutting. The marker is Charles Baggott, at one time an English butler at the British Embassy in Washington. The parachutes he is helping to produce hold a personal interest for him since his mother and four sisters are in England and his brother is a Royal Air Force (RAF) pilot instructor in Canada.
