Everyone had a role to play in the Second World War
When we think of war, our minds automatically slip to a muddy battlefield and the sound of the troops marching to the front line with all kinds of artillery and weapons. But it is because of those left at home keeping the home fire burning that the men on the Homefront were never short of the supplies needed to fight for our victory.
Due to the metal shortage in October 1942, housewives across the nation donated their pots and pans, communities ripped apart their vehicles and children proudly took their metal toys to school to participate in the scrap metal drives.
Scrap drives were a vital part of the Second World War, not only did they provide the materials to support those fighting against the enemy, but they also made each and every individual, including children, feel a part of the war effort.
With a beautiful array of military products commemorating the important anniversaries of the Second World War, be a part of this great war effort by keeping the memories and stories alive 80 years on.
