Many people during World War 2 had a corrugated Anderson shelter dug into their garden. They would go into the shelter when there was an air raid and stay inside it until the all clear siren sounded. It was meant to fit up to eight people inside it and had basic provisions like a camping stove and bunk beds for the inhabitants.
