Do you remember collecting shrapnel and listening to Children’s Hour? Carrying gas masks or sharing your school with evacuees from the city?

The 1940s was a decade of great challenge for everyone who lived through it. The hardships and fear created by a world war were immense. Britain’s towns and cities were being bombed on an almost nightly basis, and many children faced the trauma of being parted from their parents and sent away to the country to live with complete strangers.

For just over half of this decade the war continued, meaning food and clothing shortages became a way of life. But through it all, and afterwards, the simplicity of kids shone. From collecting bits of shot-down German aircraft to playing in bomb-strewn streets, kids made their own fun. Then there was the joy of the second half of the 1940s, when fathers came home and the magic of ‘normal life’ returned.

This trip down memory lane will take you through the most memorable and evocative experiences of growing up in the 1940s.
