Aberdeen’s Experience during World War II

We were really lucky to have Allan Paterson from Aberdeen Urban Studies Trust visiting us on Tuesday. We were learning about how World War II affected everyday life in the city of Aberdeen.


We had great fun handling artefacts such as helmets and pieces of shrapnel.

We looked at maps to identify some of the locations where the bombs fell.

We learned about rationing, air raid shelters, identification badges, school and lots more!
