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 firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the researchers will be in touch.
