Many fought in WW2, others worked in factories and mines, etc. Almost everyone accepted direction of labour: the government planned the economy and told people what jobs they could have and so on. They accepted (and co-operated with) rationing, price controls accepted extremely high levels of income tax. In addition, many civilians volunteered to help as unpaid firefighters and rescuers when British cities were bombed. The list of ways in which people helped the war effort, especially indirectly, is almost endless. This is just a start. Joncey
