The May set of this series of short accounts of war experiences of people with connections to Radley and life on the home front in the village are now available.
The first account is that of a German lady, Lorre Stebbings, who married an English soldier after the war and later was a worshipper at Radley Church for many years.
The second is the wartime story of Doug Rawlinson, a long-time resident of Radley and member of Radley History Club who died in March. His account covers his time as an evacuee from London and his time in the Navy from 1944 to 1947.
The first three in a series of short accounts of the war experiences of Radley people and life on the home front in the village are now available. More will be published each month
