The Home Front in East Dunbartonshire 1939-1945


Teacher comments

'Excellent range of resources, very well displayed.  The pupils loved the Anderson shelter.  The role play clothes proved to be very popular and most of the pupils completed the task sheets with no difficulty.  The street party, which was organised to consolidate the experience, went down very well and the pensioners that came along were very interesting to talk to.  The pupils really enjoyed the whole experience'

'I didn't like the rationing section, as I didn't like weighing and sewing.  Also only the girls got to dress up'
