During the late 1930s much effort was expended academically on how a population would react to being bombed. There were some who thought the breakdown of civil order would happen; others that a great strain on the economy would ensue as bombed out families had to be re-homed and industry lost workers. As the German bombing efforts were to intensify the Ministry of Home Security produced a number of publications. These were aimed at educating the population on how to create refuges in your home, to maintaining your gas mask. This publication from 1940 (costly 3 old pence) was one such publication.
This publication has been reproduced and is available at very good prices on eBay.
