This is a photo of my father in front of the Anderson shelter. It had been dug up and turned into a shed. My father, uncle Fred, and uncle Harry built the shed after digging it up in the first place. He used it for his workshop; he was good at woodcraft and made cupboards and a ladder. He made three steps to stand on, and I've still got those.
