World War 2 Talk

As part of our local knowledge badge we had to learn about what derby was like in the past, so a kind lady from Derby Museum came in and told us all about what it was like in derby during World War 2, and we had ago of being ARP (Air Raid Patrol) Wardens and learnt about the job they did throughout the war.


We got to wear a gas mask and make a lot of noise with some wooden ratchets similar to football rattles. We all had ago of making cardboard gasmask boxes like people had to carry around with them during the war. We had lots and learnt a lot.
