WWII Wartime Shelter at Cardiff Castle
My last post was my mother's written memories of living in Washington, D.C. during World War II. I recently visited Cardiff, Wales and toured Cardiff Castle. The exterior walls of the castle complex have tunnels through them. During World War II, these tunnels were used as a Wartime Shelter. The exhibit has benches lining the walls, bunk beds, and a canteen. Posters were also on the exhibit's wall including one that reminded me of my mother's Victory Garden: Dig for Victory.
