Talk: Home Front WW2 by Pheobe Merrick


This talk looks at the Romsey area of Hampshire in the first months of World War II – known as the 'phoney war' before bombing became serious. Romsey and its hinterland has been selected because it was of little strategic importance, unlike nearby Southampton, or the military installations on the chalklands to the north. This talk reviews the social structure of the community and then considers how the early stage of the war impinged on people's lives. We will be offering refreshments on the evening. Talks are for 16+ years.
