WW2 Anderson Shelter
A friend's child needed to do a school project on the second world war, make a model of an Anderson Shelter. I was called in the 'help' and after 3 weeks of intense work we created this 1/12 scale model which has a removable front so you can see inside and a small light to show how cramped they were. Alisha was awarded a head teachers award for this. Photo by Nick Hennessy

Illustrated history of the Blitz
More than 43,000 people were killed in little more than eight terrifying months. But it didn't lead to the decisive crushing of British resolve which Hitler had intended.
The Anderson Shelter.
Many people during World War 2 had a corrugated Anderson shelter dug into their garden. They would go into the shelter when there was an air raid and stay inside it until the all clear siren sounded. It was meant to fit up to eight people inside it and had basic provisions like a camping stove and bunk beds for the inhabitants.
