On the 3rd of September 1939 at 11.15am, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain took to the airwaves to annouce that Britian was at war with Germany. This followed an ultimatum given to Hilter to pull his troops out of Poland after Germany invaded Poland, which Germany failed to respond to. You can listen to this annoucement at The Devil’s Porridge Museum.
