My grandfather was an Air Raid Warden. He wore a helmet and carried a gas mask during the air raids. I remember whenever we went to visit him I'd love to put on the helmet and mask.

Also, in school I remember a big chart on the wall with the silhouettes of both enemy and American aircraft. We learned to identify them so if we saw an enemy plane we were to let an adult know so they could call the authorities.
