A question for economic/monetary historians

I\’m interested in finding out some fairly recondite information about government debt.

Specifically, what was the age profile of the debt burden immediately post WWII (and what is it now)?

I know that there were and are Consols for example (perpetuals) and would love to know whether those were still being issued at/just before 1945? What portion of the debt was perpetual (for all I know it could have been tiny), what short term and what long?

Anyone know where I might be able to find out?
