Post 23 1941

10 mins United Kingdom Director. Ralph Bond

Besides the day-to-day activity of an Air Raid Wardens’ post, there is also a strong sense of community depicted in ‘Post 23’. In extremely challenging circumstances, the civil defence workers of ‘Post 23’ respond to the home front’s daily challenges, as people from various backgrounds and professions work together to help those worst affected by war.

The IWM Film Archive is the oldest film archive in the UK, holding over 20,000 hours of film, video and digital material and covering the two World Wars and all conflicts involving British or Commonwealth Forces since the start of the Twentieth Century to the present. Our collection also reflects aspects of civilian life in wartime, military life in peacetime, military exercises and operations.
