Program 1182: The War Department’s V-Disc program of providing specially recorded musical entertainment to our troops around the world began in the Summer of 1943.

Various colors and textures create an authentic feel with layers of interest. “When I started, we had a small office in a little shop with three other people and I designed kitchens with paper and a pencil […] Things just keep growing for deVOL, and our decision to open premises in London has really accelerated the growth — it’s such an exciting place to have a showroom and we have fallen in love with our new home in East London,” Helen Parker, Creative Director at deVOL shares.
