That’s the trouble at my age, you start losing all your best friends.
– Doris Coppell
The thought of all those lovely sailors was tempting, so I thought I’d opt for the navy.
– Doris Coppell
They’d invited a group of Wrens to go on board and be shown around the boat. Well that was what they said! And I’ll leave it to your imagination once you get down in the officers' ward room it’s more drinks and everything else, you know.
– Doris Coppell
Sometimes I used to relieve the telephone operator at the naval base …so I used to spend all night talking to the Yanks on the boats and making blind dates, which we never kept. You do all sorts of things when you’re young.
