(Woman:) "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 had Nasturtiums growing all over it, and we painted the front green. Painted, it looked quite pretty. Next door grew cabbages on theirs".

(Man:) "Yes, we had a Morrison. Mmmm. 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 smoky, 'cause I used to read in bed with a candle".

(Woman:) "Yes, it was nice at the war, really. The shelters, the blackout, the cups of tea..."

(Man:) "The A.R.P., the evacuees, London kids seeing cows for the first time...."

(Woman: "Old Churchill on the wireless..."

(Man:) "Those were the days".
