Around Lingfield at War
Available in Stock
During the Second World War, more people came into Lingfield in south-east Surrey than left it. Hundreds of men and women went to do wartime service, but hundreds of Canadian soldiers moved in and 1,000 enemy aliens were imprisoned on the racecourse. This book is a detailed account of how a rural community responded to the demands of war, looking especially at the role of the Canadians, the presence of European refugees and, after May 1945, Jewish orphans from the concentration camps.
