Corrugated iron
Installed in a pit and covered with earth, they were "do it yourself" bomb shelters, most frequently used in London during the blitz. 6 ft (1.8 m) high, 4 ft 6 in (1.4 m) wide, and 6 ft 6 in (2 m) long, buried 4 ft (1.2 m) deep and covered with a minimum of 15 in (0.4 m) of soil above the roof, they could hold 6 people.
