…. every family was affected, sometimes we only had potatoes for our meal, you know potatoes and milk or something like that, there was very little else. Sheila MacKay Inverness in school during the war
All of a sudden I heard a low-flying plane and the noise of falling bombs. They hit the Il-Hara tar-Rokon, a quarter in San Lawrenz village. We saw flames engulfing the houses; we heard the shrieks of frightened children and people. Confusion was everywhere. Many people were injured. Louis Cauchi 15 years old Gozo Malta

During an air raid, children would be rushed to the nearby shelters. For them all this was an adventure, since they would always be happy, as they would not be in school!

I was very pleased for the atomic bomb because it meant I wouldn’t have to leave home again after being away for five years. I could go back home to my mother and father and live a normal life.

Everybody carried an identity card in this country. They would keep track of where everybody went so that they could be checked on. In the area where I was born, the identity card system had not started operating when I left. But during my 3rd leave coming home I couldn’t get in. Nobody was there to verify who I was. They had to phone up the local hotel in my little village to verify who I was. This is the registration book and identity card. Every time you moved you had to put your new address in it. You’d get stamped from the place you were leaving and the place you’re moving to. Eventually when I left Inverness in 1949, the registration and identity card was still in operation, it had every shift I had. I had six addresses in my identity card booklet.

“ ….when you are frightened and terrified you pray that it (V1 bomb) keeps going, you don’t want anything to happen to you. After it passed you thought am’nt I a coward, it will kill innocent women and children in London. Perhaps it would be better if it landed here.”
