NAAFI Days & Southampton Blitz.
NAAFI Days by Lucy Miles
I was in
when I was called up and joined the
NAAFI, first with the Royal Fusiliers and then at Boscombe
From there I went to various
NAAFI's at Bovington, Larkhill, Zeals, Blandford Camp and
eventually, to West Moors Camp. The lads were always
cheerful and looking on the bright side. The day peace was
declared, everyone was so excited and there was laughing and
dancing in the streets.
Blitz by Audrey Thorne
My war memories are of being
bombed out of my home at
, losing most of
the things I treasured at the age of 16 and spending the
rest of the war in Fordingbridge where people made my family
so welcome. I did voluntary work for the ARP and siren duty
where I met my husband-to-be.
