Memories of wartime Warwick

Graham Doughty’s family got in touch with Unlocking Warwick to suggest we record his memories of his early schooldays in Warwick during WW2. He is a retired engineer still living in Warwick, and vividly remembers events in the later stages of the war.

You can see an account of his memories – of whale meat at school, POWs, wounded soldiers returning from France and Warwick’s air raid shelters – in our WW2 section called ‘Personal Memories’. On June 19th, the Warwick Courier carried a full-page account of Graham’s recollections.

We would still like to collect more memories of wartime Warwick from those old enough to remember. Email and one of the researchers will be in touch.
