From the foreword: This is the story of my experience of the Second World War. It was just after my fifth birthday that the United Kingdom declared war on Germany, I was nearly eleven when hostilities ended after the atomic bombs had been dropped on Japan. I lived mostly in Minehead in Somerset or in London and at times experienced war from close quarters. Contents include:

Early Memories
War Splits the Family
Minehead - Life with Gran
The War Changes Minehead
A Break in London
Back to Gran in Minehead
The Armed Services and the Progress of the War
Return to London
An Essex Interlude
To London Again
Some Thoughts on Wartime Life
How the War Affected Us

Condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
