4th March 1940

They have begun digging new ARP shelters at the S. end of the Holly Trees [Museum] Field. It is curious to think that the [first] shelters in the Field were put there in 1938, and indeed people have been talking about ARP for about two years now.

A number of ARP shelters were dug around Colchester Castle Park and Hollytrees Museum. See Eric's previous diary entries on air raid shelters for further information.
