Linda Grace and Margaret Nicolle had a very successful Book Launch of A Woman Living in The Shadow of the Second World War at the King Edward Hall in Lindfield on Wednesday 3rd December.
The Hall was full and people enjoyed listening to their presentation which was followed by a book signing.
Their book contains edited extracts of Helena Hall’s Second World War Journal in which she described her everyday activities, including her work as an Air Raid Warden in Lindfield, alongside descriptions of momentous national and international events. Through this it is possible to gain an insight into the impact of the conflict locally. and it also shows the energy and commitment of people in the area to the war effort.
The book is published by Pen and Sword Books and can be purchased from bookshops or ordered online.
