    Air raids could happen at any time of the day or night so schools had to provide shelter for their pupils. In Gresford, near Wrexham, a purpose-built shelter in the school field served the pupils, which was paid for by Sir Alfred Mc Alpine, of Marchwiel Hall. Here we see the children leaving the shelter after an air raid exercise.
