The history of the ARP in the UK can be viewed by clicking on here. As can be seen from this ‘Bomb Dropped Locations Map’, which can be viewed by clicking on here, this area of London, near Romford, was very heavily ‘blitzed’ during the war - this family would have been in the thick of it.

Defence Medals unnamed as issued.
The medals are loose with their original ribbons, wax packets and within their original boxes of issue. Each box contains the Home Secretary’s Medal Award Slip, and this listing comes with a lot of ARP memorabilia including:
