Huddersfield at war

Wheeler, Hazel2007
Books, Manuscripts
Abstract: "Many neighbours arranged to dash into each other's shelters on alternate alerts. It gave them a bit more chance to gossip." Hazel Wheeler looks at life in Huddersfield during the Second World War. From rationing and the extra work that this involved for her shopkeeper father, to the working lives of men and women, this is an absorbing look at how the people of Huddersfield coped with the war. With a real sense of a community banding together, Hazel collects wartime stories of playing games while waiting for the all clear, of knitting for the troops and of the joy of VE Day.
