A nurse takes the pulse of a boy in the top bunk on 6 February 1941. They are in the medical aid post at South Kensington Underground station, sheltering from bombs during the Second World War. Medical first aid posts, with at least one trained nurse and sometimes a doctor, were established in every station. About 200 nurses and 30 were doctors employed by London Transport specifically to do this work.
