A delightful piece of wartime publishing, now reissued! All of the practicality, ingenuity, and make-do-and-mend-ethos that helped win the war―from knitting balaclava helmets for the navy to making croquet games for the floor and table for blackout days―is chronicled here for historical novelty and inspiration. With 101 suggestions for things to do during Britain’s darkest hour, this charming guide pulls together suggestions for making puzzles in cardboard and toys in wool and felt, cooking meatless dishes without using water, fixing up the garden, and preparing lampshades for the blackout. With dozens of diagrams, patterns and instructions, it is not only a fascinating look at the past but can be used for reference even now.
