The people who didn't go to the war were busy at home helping the war effort.

Children helped in different ways.

One way was to write letters and send parcels to those at war. This would help to cheer up the people who were at war.

At lots of schools the children would spend time knitting each day. They would knit warm clothes for the soldiers.

At night time people had black blinds over their windows. This stopped any light getting out. There were no lights in the streets outside.

.
Lots of food was sent overseas to the soldiers. At home people used coupons to buy food, clothing and petrol . This made sure that there was enough to go around everyone. It also meant that there were less treats
