History
English term or phrase: blackout patrol
Es geht um Motorradfahrerinnen eines weiblichen Motorrad-Clubs während des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Amerika. Sie arbeiteten ehrenamtlich in der Zivilverteidigung. Der Satz lautet:

"They ran ***blackout patrols*** and were ready to volunteer for dispatch riding if the war were to spread to American shores"

Um was genau handelt es sich beim eingesternten Teil ? Kann mir nicht viel darunter vorstellen, außer Fahrten im Dunkeln????
