Life as a female butcher during the Second World War was recalled by a speaker during a meeting of the NHS Retirement Fellowship Wisbech Branch.
Rosemary Wheeler told how her dream had been to be a pianist but when war broke out her brothers had to fight so she was left to help at home.
The work was hard and heavy, she said, and the shop remains in Lavenham Suffolk.
The February meeting was held at the Rosmini Centre and 31 members attended with 11 apologies, it was opened by the chairman and one new member, Marie Krauss.
This years outings will be to the Tramway Museum near Matlock on June 15 and to Cromer on September 7.
