Local historial seeks war memories

Monday, January 12, 2004

Have you any memories of the war years - 1939 to1945 - in Halifax, Hebden Bridge or the Calder Valley generally? Were you an evacuee or do you remember evacuees? (some info. has been gleaned from the Hebden Bridge website here). Do any of the following strike a chord - the Home Guard, rationing, the blackout,bombing, munitions work or the Land Army?

I am hoping to write a book concerning the Home Front locally, and would appreciate any help you can give me. Please email me at plkthomas@hotmail.com or ring 01422 842210

Thanks - Peter Thomas.
