Synopsis

For those living in Britain between 1939 and 1945, the war was an ever-present reality; reminders were to be found everywhere. Huge numbers of objects relating to the war effort at home - some functional, like gas masks, ARP uniforms and ration books, and others less so, like Hitler chamber pots and toys and games - were manufactured and became commonplace in homes up and down the land.
