The Anderson Shelter

This song is by Roger Waters and appears on the movie soundtrack When the Wind Blows (1986).

Hilda Bloggs: It's funny to think there's no shelters this time. We had an old Anderson in the garden. I can see it now! We have stertians growing all over it. And we painted the front green. Painted it looked quite pretty! Next door grew cabbages on theirs.

Jim Bloggs: Yeah. We had a Morrison. Mmm, I used to sleep in it. I stuck pin-up girls all over the inside. Betty Grabel, Ann Shelton, Tricia Rock. The roof got all smokey 'cause I used to read in bed with a candle.

Hilda Bloggs: Yes, it was nice at the war really. The shelters, the blackouts, cups of tea.

Jim Bloggs: The A.R.P., the evacuees, London kids seeing cows for the first time.

Hilda Bloggs: Old Churchill on the wireless!

Jim Bloggs: Those were the days.
