WW2 Air Raid Warden

The Year is 1941, it's May the 3rd and in North Shields Year 5 had a visit from a World War 2 Air Raid Warden looking for new recruits.

He explained all about the unpaid job and what was required from the newly enrolled patrol cadets.

He talked about the equipment needed, such as a whistle, a hard hat, a rope and a bell and how these were used.

The trainees listened to the announcement from the Prime Minister telling the country that we were at war with Germany and they heard the Air raid siren.

They learned what to to, where to send people, how to keep the, safe and what to do after the bombing was over.
