As early as 1936, Dudley had formed an Air Raid Precautions Committee in preparation for war. Gas masks, public shelters, decontamination and gas detection centres were all part and parcel of getting ready for war. Due to Dudley’s manufacturing munitions production, it was considered to be a target for extensive enemy bombing. Come and listen to explosive stories from the men and women living dangerously in the Black Country at the time.
