Wartime Childhood Memories 1939 -1945

Compiled and edited by Pam Veale

Published in September 2008, this A4 format, soft-cover book has 132 pages and contains the previously unpublished childhood memories of 28 Museum members.  Their stories relive the scares, occasional excitement and innocence of living in England during the difficult years of World War II.  Civilians on the Home Front also endured the dangers and hardships of wartime Britain and attempted to follow ordinary lives when the risk of enemy bombs, flying bombs, rockets, and strafing aircraft were very real - plus the likelihood of the destruction or damage of their homes, poor rations, disrupted supplies, evacuation, and the loss of loved ones.  These were not always evident to the children, however, who had the remarkable ability to bounce back and treat a disaster simply as a temporary break from games.

Pam Veale, Museum Education Officer, was influenced to encourage members to tell their stories from questions and comments made by school children during their organised visits to the Museum, to research information on World War II.  They often said that talking to members about their wartime experiences was the best bit of the visit.  Many were surprised to find that the authors were now in their 70s and 80s, however, having read a short account beforehand of what they got up to as children in World War II.   Wisdom comes with age! 

Price £5 plus £2.50 UK postage.
