Welcome back to Thompson’s yard…

January 1945. Spring is in the air. And so is victory…

Wedding bells are ringing at long last for Gloria and her soon-to-be husband Jack. But she can’t rest until her youngest son is safely home.

Head welder Rosie is delighted her own husband has returned from enemy territory. But the promise of victory brings more change. Her squad has come so far – what will happen when the war ends?

Meanwhile Helen is caught between two men – but must hide her true feelings from the one she loves. Can her fellow women welders help Helen follow her heart?

Only by working together will the Shipyard Girls win the day.
