Cold War

  
With the talk of the new cold war I thought I would look back to a picture from the early 60's in those days the country was preparing for a nuclear attack with an updated dads army.
Civil Defence consisted of WRVS emergency feeding units, Rescue units  to recover people from  damaged buildings, scientific advisors to plot the radiation with the Royal Observer corps .
My role in this was a radio operator (valve powered radio that took two people to carry and was powered by 3x 12 volt car batteries in a large wooden box) with a recognisance unit that went out to measure the radiation.  (Gun fodder)
Picture is of one of the recognisance Land rovers outside ~Green Park station, as I remember  the caption is L to R  
Dennis, Mike O'Brien, Sam (17) and Major Kay who organised the Civil Defence for the City of Bath.
