Year 6 treated the rest of the Prep School and some of their own family members to an excellent, informative and entertaining 1930s-themed assembly this morning. Look out for a report and lots more pictures coming soon on the blog – and meanwhile, enjoy these two of the group demonstrating gas masks.

Gas masks were issued in 1938, and over 44 million had been distributed by the outbreak of war in September 1939. It was thought that poison gas might be used against civilians as well as the widely-expected and feared bombing raids.
