The Old Mansfield Society is pleased to announce a new publication that is now on sale in W.H. Smith's :

MANSFIELD in WORLD WAR II
by
The Old Mansfield Society

The new book is 60 pages long, in sub A4 format, and costs 4.95.
It Mansfield in World War II is a compilation of memories by people who lived in Mansfield during that war. Mansfield was very fortunate in not being a target for enemy bombing, while producing materials for the war effort. This made it a safe place for its hospitals to treat the wounded and for children who had been evacuated from areas of danger. These memories don't recall a time of personal danger but of managing to cope with the restrictions that wartime brings. Some describe ordinary day to day actions which are now a thing of the past. These are worth recording so that they are not forgotten.
