‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ – A Year of Resilience
‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ was a slogan issued by the Government in 1939 when the world was a worrying place for different reasons than today. At that time, the UK faced the threat of what was to be the Battle of Britain and the Blitz. A rallying cry to stir the British people into action and stoic defence that we see as our way of life and rights as human beings domiciled on these Islands. 80 years after the Blitz, in my home city of Coventry, I am prompted to reflect on the link between this slogan and classic cars of today.
