Local Paper No.30 – Warden & Fire Guard Services Review (facsimile reprint)
Author: Chief Inspector T. Swanton, MBE
A facsimile, with permission of Southampton City Council, of a booklet published in 1945. It explains the organisation of the Southampton Air Raid Precautions (ARP) and Fire Service, with detailed information about the town’s ARP Divisions, the Warden’s establishment, exercises carried out in 1937/8, a précis of the main air-raids, detailed descriptions of the various bombs & explosives used, and statistics of air-raid casualties and building damage. It also names the many Principal Officers of the organisations, together with details of the awards and commendations they received. This booklet is a must for those who lived through this period of Southampton’s history and those whose parents/grandparents served in either of these local services.
