Nice. I like that a civil service was created to coordinate salvage, and that there would be a medal awarded. That's a very good way to commemorate a "we're all in this together" spirit.

Read the book Warday and they have something like it running in New York after it gets hit by the bomb.

Ironically I've got it in my "to reread pile." Not read it since mid 1990s and was planning to mine for ideas!

That was a really good read - well done - I like it a lot.

One suggestion...Government Transition to War plans called for items of national importance to be evacuated from major Cities (I note you mention that things such as the Magna Carta were lost after having been removed from the British Museum). As far as I know plans called for these items to be moved to locations in places such as North Wales and Derbyshire (amongst others), so perhaps potential for RSA teams to ecome into contact with Welsh Separatist Forces and others?

Also, given the areas they were working in, perhaps they would have been issued some NBC kit?

Thanks, I just left it at hints to allow GMs to place things where they like. I might make it a bit more obvious.

I had considered NBC suits but as UK ones are charcoal based I can't see even the military having enough so I left them out. I could be persuaded to include some or at least geiger counters & chemical sniffers.

How about this organization is where most of the men they brought home from Europe may have gone to? I.e. you get three squares, a tent and protection for both you and your family - you arent carrying a rifle now you are carrying a shovel

Default Stone of Scone

The Stone of Scone also known as the Stone of Destiny and often referred to in England as The Coronation Stone, is an oblong block of red sandstone, used for centuries in the coronation of the monarchs of Scotland and later the monarchs of England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom. Historically, the artifact was kept at the now-ruined Scone Abbey in Scone, near Perth, Scotland. Its size is about 26 inches (660 mm) by 16.75 inches (425 mm) by 10.5 inches (270 mm) and its weight is approximately 336 pounds (152 kg). The top bears chisel-marks. At each end of the stone is an iron ring, apparently intended to make transport easier. In 1296 the Stone was captured by Edward I as spoils of war and taken to Westminster Abbey, where it was fitted into a wooden chair, known as King Edward's Chair, on which most subsequent English sovereigns have been crowned. Since 1996 it has resided in Edinburgh Castle, where it remains along with the crown jewels of Scotland in the Crown Room. Provision has been made to transport the stone to Westminster Abbey when it is required there for future coronation ceremonies.
