A brief history of CC41 – The Utility Clothing Scheme

I’ve been fascinated by the history of the Utility Clothing Scheme in Britain for years and I have a very strong penchant for buying garments with the CC41 logo, even multiples of the same item. What can I tell you, I can never resist, yet another pair of 1940s knickers or a teddy. It’s simply beyond my control!

Considering my large, and yet, still growing collection of clothes and lingerie bearing the CC41 tag, some might say that I’m a little bit obsessed with it. I, however, prefer the word passionate.
