I was 6 when war started. We lived at Forest Fields in Nottingham. I remember my dad putting up the Anderson Shelter. It took up about all our garden, it went half under ground and half sticking out. We had to share it with a few neighbours. Us kids thought it was good fun. There was a box in there with biscuits and things in, we’d get told off for eating it. It was there in case we had to stay in for a long while.
As children we didn’t understand the seriousness of it all.
