Meeting Report: Growing up in Wartime Battersea

Sue Denton, one of the research team has written an interesting 50 page book as a report of the project. Cost £5

On Thursday 8 November Carol Rahn gave a fascinating presentation at the November meeting on an oral history project assembling the memories of local people who were living in Battersea during World War II. Their recollections of their childhood, their experiences of air raid shelters, brushes with death and evacuation made fascinating listening. The talk was accompanied by footage of the interviews which brought home the realities of a life far distant from that of children today.
