School Kids: Make your own Pillbox!

As part of the National School Curriculum covering the WWII British Home Front why not get your pupils to make their own Pillbox?

Simply copy the plan below and `print to fit` on A4 size sheets of paper.

Get your pupils to bring a standard size cereal box to the class and then glue the plan to one of the main sides (one box will make two pillboxes) .

Print out on A4 sheet of paper

Then cut around the edges of the plan stick the sides together on the inside using cellotape.

Defence Structures and sites of all types both above and below ground can be very dangerous. Serious injury or even death can arise from unauthorised entry into such sites and structures. Join a responsible club, group or society who can arrange official visits. The Pillbox Study Group accepts no responsibility for any damages or injuries caused by ignoring this advice. The PSG does not encourage members to undertake the ad hoc clearance of vegetation from pillboxes, as it can expose them to physical damage and inappropriate use, it may also contravene a variety of statutory regulations including, listed buildings and SSSI designations. Vegetation clearance should only ever be undertaken as part of a formal arrangement, having sought and obtained permission from the land owner and other necessary authorities. Damaging a listed or scheduled monument can be considered as a Heritage Crime.
