Evelyn August. The Black-out Book: One-hundred-and-one Black-out Nights' Entertainment. Oxford and New York: Osprey, 2009 [1939]. A facsimile reprint containing jokes, puzzles, games, trivia and other bits and pieces: giving a lower-brow (and I'm sure more accurate) impression of what people actually did in shelters than this. Evelyn August was the pseudonym of Sydney and Muriel Box.
