I'm just a little too young to remember much about the Cold War, but I do recall in the mid-1960s going to a Civil Defence exhibition in my home town (south coast UK) where they'd set up a 'Fallout Room'. - whitewashed windows, jars of boiled sweets to keep morale up, etc. I was about 11, and it seemed pretty silly, but I recall my parents being very subdued about it and telling me off for laughing at the bucket toilet setup.
