A SCHOOLBOY'S WAR IN CORNWALL

I'm preparing reading matter for a couple of local radio programmes and have returned to Jim Reeve's last book (pictured).  Jim and Joan Reeve travelled to Cornwall to do their research and this book can be bought in many Cornish bookshops, as well as nationals such as Waterstones and W H Smith.

Jim shares memories with readers  of his own evacuation from war-torn London to places like Newquay, St Ives and Redruth.  His pictures are unique and so poignant.

This is such a fascinating book.  £12.99 ISBN 978-0-7524-5540-2 published by THE HISTORY PRESS
