As the threat of conflict again overshadowed Britain in the 1930s, the nation began to take measures to prepare itself for the possibility of war. One of a series of official publications issued by the Home Office, The Protection of Your Home Against Air Raids (1938) offers a glimpse of the precautions all households were urged to take in the event of aerial attack. Addressing problems such as "Things to get for your refuge-room" , "Things to do if there should ever be a war" and "What the head of the household should do", this faithful facsimile allows the reader a glimpse into the general public's experience of wartime Britain.
