Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
A chilling scene! :( The bomb drills were before my time - I can't imagine that sort of constant threat looming over the conscience of a small child.
Yes, Children in Britain, particularly London had it pretty bad in World War II. I can not imagine having to watch your city be bombed almost daily.
I've seen this photo before and I can;t help but wonder what the thinking behind this type of shelter was. It seems pretty inadequate as it is open to the skies.Can anyone enlighten me - was this type of blast trench used a lot; were they dug to provide a modicum of protection if you wre "caught out" when an alarm sounded? Any ideas anyone?
