Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory. Make do and mend. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sunk ships. And, as peace is declared, lets get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says Its an unconditional surrender.
