The town of Banstead lies in Surrey on the border with Greater London, just east of Epsom, and although strictly a town it is often referred to by locals as 'Banstead Village'.
Illustrated throughout with lots of black and white photographs, this book contains the recollections of people who lived in the Banstead Urban District area during the Second World War. The result is a convincing account of what it was like to live under a constant threat of bombing and with all the difficulties of rationing and other aspects of wartime. The book includes stories of Home Guard and other Emergency Service activities, and offers a fascinating insight into the local history of the area during the war....
Condition of the book is generally good. The cover has some minor scuffs, and some light nibbling and creasing along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
