   NAAFI Days & Southampton Blitz.  


NAAFI Days by Lucy Miles

I was in Bournemouth when I was called up and joined the NAAFI, first with the Royal Fusiliers and then at Boscombe Barracks.

From there I went to various NAAFI's at Bovington, Larkhill, Zeals, Blandford Camp and eventually, to West Moors Camp. The lads were always cheerful and looking on the bright side. The day peace was declared, everyone was so excited and there was laughing and dancing in the streets.

Southampton Blitz by Audrey Thorne

My war memories are of being bombed out of my home at Southampton , losing most of the things I treasured at the age of 16 and spending the rest of the war in Fordingbridge where people made my family so welcome. I did voluntary work for the ARP and siren duty where I met my husband-to-be.
