Duck and Cover During the Blitz
We practiced doing this in my elementary school during the Cold War. And in practically the same position. It wouldn’t have done any good for us or for these children but what the hell.
These London schoolchildren are in the midst of an air raid drill ordered by the London Board of Education as a precaution in case an air raid comes too fast to give the youngsters a chance to leave the building for special shelters, on July 20, 1940. They were ordered to go to the middle of the room, away from windows, and hold their hands over the backs of their necks. (AP Photo)
