For more than five years Britons lived with the fear of invasion and the horror of the Blitz. Families experienced food shortages and rationing, while children were evacuated from cities and separated from their parents. What was the impact of these experiences on those at home? What effect did this have on the morale of the British public? For those groups looking for answers to these questions and keen to look in more detail at life on the Home Front Anglia offers the perfect solution.
As part of our Living History Experience, why not have one of our teams of historical interpreters, in period costume, visit your school to present a session tailored to your needs. Not only will this allow your students to ask these questions themselves it will also give them a chance to handle clothing, artefacts and items of the time. Alternatively, why not let our partners at Square Route Walks take you on a guided walking tour of London, finding out where the first German bomb fell and how the ‘Spirit of the Londoner’ prevailed amidst the terror of ‘Total war’.
As ever Anglia staff were totally attentive and professional throughout the tour
