The Bolts

Leonard Clow


The panels of corrugated steel were joined together by nuts, bolts and washers. My father, Henry, was in the scouts during the first part of the war and use to erect Anderson shelters. He says: "we had to use the one spanner that was supplied with the kit to tighten all the bolts. This meant that someone else had to be inside holding the nut with their fingers whilst the other was above tightening with the spanner. The person holding the nut inside would usually end up with cuts on their fingers."
