The blonde pouring tea has had a more than she can handle of it. No, this is seriously how they managed to live and avoid being wounded from the bombing. My grandmother was a Neighborhood Watch, well, it had some other name, but that was the task, to warn.

Air Raid Warden - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Raid_Precautions_in_the_United_Kingdom#Wardens

ARP warden ensured the blackout was observed, sounded air raid sirens, safely guided people into public air raid shelters, issued and checked gas masks, evacuated areas around unexploded bombs, rescued people where possible from bomb damaged properties, located temporary accommodation for those who had been 'bombed out', and reporting to their Control Centre about incidents, fires, etc. and to call in other services as required.
