Steering Through London

The London Passenger Transport Board had been in existence just over six years when Britain entered into war with Germany on 3rd September 1939. A year before, measures had been put in place to provide trench shelters, first aid points and adapt pits in garages to become shelters. Over twenty thousand male staff were called up during the war, and women joined the ranks to fill the void. One hundred and eighty one members of staff were killed on duty. The vehicle fleet also suffered badly, with many buses, trams and trolleybuses destroyed. This book is a largely chronological story of the period, focusing in particular on the behind-the-scenes planning by London Transport, both before the war (starting in 1937) and during it.
