Morrison shelters - named after the Home Secretary Herbert Morrison - were produced from January 1941. They consisted of a rectangular steel-and-mesh cage which could accommodate two adults and two children. The Morrison was intended for use indoors, so was suitable for those without gardens. Though more popular than Anderson shelters, they were less effective as they provided no lateral protection. They could also be used as a dining table during daytime.
