WWII Bomber Command Board Game

During WWII a board game was designed called Bomber Command. 

It was a simple game where you throw the dice and move on the number of squares that the dice shows - the same format as many other board games

The board was made of card and attached to it would have been a template to cut out and fold to make the dice, and the same for the coloured counters.

Last year at a car boot sale this board for the game was found. Unfortunately the dice and counters were missing, but that's not surprising when you think how small they would have been and vulnerable made out of card.

Paper was on ration in the UK so this would have been a valued game when most of the industry in the UK would have been for the war effort.

Quite a rare find and a bargain at £1.Now on display in building number 11.
