Pupils at Stracathro Primary School have been learning about the Home Front and recently have brought a variety of facts to school.

Mr Sherrit visited the school to show the children an air raid siren working.

These were used during the Second World War to alert the public to air raids so that they could seek protection in air raid shelters.

A spokesperson for the school said: “By the time all the children had a go at turning the starter handle the residents of Inchbare must have been heading for the shelters!”
