Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: Violet May lived in Southhampton England during the worst days of the Blitz. Each night at 6:30 PM the air raid siren would sound. Violet and her  parents and brothers and sisters were expected to leave the house, go out into the back yard and stay six feet down in the air raid shelter until the all clear signal sounded at 6:00 AM the next morning. This was a bother and often the family would ignore the regimen and remain in their own beds.
