Liverpool Blitz: 8am
Children who haven't been evacuated are preparing for school. Mothers check school bags and make sure everyone has their gas
masks. The bombings have made the city nervous, and even those who hadn't carried masks now take their boxes everywhere. Once
the children have left mothers quickly tidy the house before leaving for the shops.
