The Story of Keep Calm and Carry On [VIDEO]

You’ve very likely seen the famous British “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster from WWII. This short video gives the interesting history behind it, along with a peek inside the wonderful-looking bookstore that played a role in that history. Would love to pay that bookstore a visit someday.

Hat tip to Charles L. for this.

Fascinating story and smartly put together video, those were some dark times. By the time WW2 started my Great Grandfather had already fought in two wars but he still joined the Local Defence Volunteers (soon to be the Home Guard). You can read about how he and thousands of other men, deemed too old or unfit for the regular army, prepared to form Britain’s last line of defence on my blog.
Keep calm and carry on!

Very nice video. As an American who was born twenty years after World War II it’s hard to imagine the horrors of daily life for all who who endure bombings during wartime. Learning more about the original poster helps (along with Foyle’s War) to remind me to take time and at least try and imagine. I assure you it does me good and I am thankful for all who fought and worked in support of the allies during the war.
