If they could, they would go to air raid shelters. If they were

at home when the air raid sirens sounded, they may have had a

concrete shelter in their back garden, or they may have had an

Anderson shelter which was made of corrugated iron and partly

buried in their back garden. If they had no outside space, they

might have had a Morrison shelter (a self assembled steel cage)

somewhere in their home. If people weren't at home, there were

various public shelters available, sometimes in underground

stations or in the crypt of a church. At one period during the war,

people slept in underground (tube) stations every night.
