History

Item list and details

The stories I am uploading are exerts taken from my grandfather's monthly village newsletter column that he wrote up until the time of his death in 2004 about life in The Fens, from being a young lad working as a 'water boy' on the old steam tractors to his participation in World War 2. These particular exerts cover my grandfather's memories of his war years, from the day he signed up to the day he set foot in Normandy as part of the D-Day landings.
