Nella Last was a housewife, married to a shop-fitter and joiner. Their younger son, Cliff, was in the Army and the older son, Arthur, was a tax inspector and therefore exempted from conscription. Both were now living away from home. The Lasts lived in Barrow-in-Furness - a shipbuilding town. During the Blitz, it became a target for German bombing.
This was a period when families were separated, and sometimes coping with the loss of a family member. Cities were being bombed, and housewives such as Nella had to find new ingenious ways to keep their homes together. This remarkable account depicts clearly what it was like for ordinary families living through World War Two.
