- Object Name: poster
- Accession Number: 1996.291.39
- Description: This is a large poster from Wartime Haddington, with a cream background with large red letters, `REST CENTRE` surrounded by a large red circle.
Posters such as these were printed throughout World War II and distributed nationally, in preparation for the aftermath of an air raid. Fortunately this poster, from North Berwick, never had to be used as the town was never raided.
This is a large square poster with bold red circle containing text, 'THIS IS A REST CENTRE'.
Throughout World War II, every town, village and city in Britain had to have a contingency plan in case an air raid caused a state of emergency in their area.
