In fact, working as the ONLY radio operator in occupied Paris. The average lifespan for that job was 6 weeks, and she lasted almost 5 months. She escaped the Gestapo numerous times, and went out fighting. All this, even though everything about her work went against her basic pacifist nature.

Also this looks like what they might have on their actual phones. Like old Charles’ background is an old family photo from when the kids were actually kids and he still had hair. And the sibs went out for Lorna’s birthday and it was just a really great picture and that’s why Wanda made it her wallpaper.
