David’s illustrated talk looks at many events including George VI’s visit to Stoughton Barracks in 1939, Dennis Brothers motor-works making munitions for the war effort, the local Home Guard, the Women’s Land Army, air raids and those who were part of the civil defence, plus how the town celebrated when peace came.
