Keeping the Kids Safe (Australia)

This isn't genealogy but a little bit about our interesting history.

My aunt told me, owning an air-raid bag and doing the drills was a marvellous adventure which lasted about a week then it became a chore and many bags were left at home or on the bus.
Nah, children haven't changed

World War Two was a difficult time for children. Some children didn't see their father for long periods of time and others would never see their father again. Many children were evacuated from England to Australia or from cities to country towns. Some pets had to be put down because of the lack of food due to rationing. School children contributed to the war effort by collecting rubber, paper and saucepans. Our empty toothpaste tubes were taken to school for scrap metal collections. There were also strict rules about wasting paper.
Many teachers left their jobs to join up. The return to school at the beginning of 1942 was delayed by two weeks while trenches were being dug in all the school grounds. Pupils were taught the procedures for moving into the trenches. Air-raid drills were performed regularly and children had to take their own air-raid bag to school containing all the items they needed for emergency.
The photo below shows children at a Sydney kindergarten practicing their air-raid drill. The headgear was designed to muffle the sound of explosions, protect their teeth and prevent them from biting their tongues.

The Laws Of Genealogy (updated by our members)

1. The document containing evidence of the missing link in your research has been lost due to fire, flood or war.

2. The keeper of the vital records you need will just have had an argument with a previous genealogist.

3. Your great, great grandfather's obituary states that he died leaving no issue.

4. The town clerk you wrote in desperation, and finally convinced to give to you the information you need, can't write legibly, and doesn't have a copying machine.

5. The will you need is in the safe on board the "Titanic."

6. The spelling of your European ancestor's name bears no relationship to its current spelling or pronunciation.

7. Copies of old newspapers have holes which only occur on last names.

8. No one in your family tree ever did anything noteworthy, they always
rented property, never sued, never went to gaol or were never named in anyone's will.

9. You learned that great aunt Matilda's executor just sold her life's
collection of family genealogical materials to a flea market dealer.

10. Yours is the ONLY last name not found among the three billion in the world-famous Mormon archives in Salt Lake City.

11. Ink fades and paper deteriorates at a rate inversely proportional to the value of the data recorded.

12. The 37 volume, 16,000 page history of your county of origin isn't
indexed.

13. The critical link in your family tree is named "Smith."

14. No matter how large the collection of special records, the one you are searching for is NEVER there!

15. You finally send away for that necessary certificate, and your aunt tells you she's had the original in a box under her bed for years.

16. The box of family photographs, you found in uncle Edgar's house after he died, have no names or dates on them

17. Your aunt can remember exactly how many times you missed sending her a birthday card, but not why her father went in gaol.

18. Everyone that shares your last name, but is not related is listed in great detail, your ancestor has nothing.

19. The family Bible that contains all the names you are researching was given to a person who doesn't care who any of his relatives are, and either misplaced, sold at a garage sale, or gave away the family Bible to his neighbor who is collecting Bibles to be sent to a mission in a non-English speaking nation.

20. The elderly great-aunt who could help you fill in the missing pieces says, "I don't believe in dredging up the past" and changes the subject - again.
