George VI - Bronze Half Penny. Obverse: Bust of George VI. Reverse: Ship.
During World War II oranges and lemons were a penny each, !lb of cheese was 10 pence and 1lb of bacon was 18 pence.
On the 28th December 1940, during the Blitz, the German air force (Luftwaffe) dropped 22,000 fire-bombs on London. This destroyed large parts of the city including residential areas. People in London sheltered from the bombs either in underground railway stations or in millions of Anderson Shelters - corrugated iron huts partially buried in the ground.
Although the German air force caused great damage to Britain's cities they did not seriously disrupt the war effort, nor did they undermine civilian morale. In some ways the bombing brought the people of Britain together.
Families in London hide in The Elephant and Castle underground station during an air raid in August 1940.
