Differences please between WW2 and this Pandemic
Posted by Norman Dunn on April 30, 2020, 12:26 pm
Can any of our senior regulars and visitors tell us what they think of this pandemic compared with the Second World War. Any similarities between the two eras and differences between them.Things such as how people coped in the 40s, things they had to do without, specifics on how South Tyneside came through the Second World War, that sort of thing.
My memory is playing in what we called 'The Bombed Buildings' and finding gas masks and tin helmets scattered around the rubbish tips . Also getting extra rationing stamps off dads sister Alice
