London's transport at war
During both World Wars, London's transport system played a vital part, keeping the city moving. Staff went well beyond the call of duty.
During the First World War, drivers took B-type buses and troops to the Western Front. Women worked as 'conductorettes', making their first forays into the male workplace.
Women played a larger role during the Second World War, replacing male staff who had joined the armed forces. They also did war work in LT factories.
Amazingly, the Tube was able to keep running throughout the war, despite providing a nightly underground home for thousands of Londoners during the Blitz.
