Surrey Record Society, Vol XLIV. Warriors at Home, 1940-1942: Three Surrey Diarists, edited by Patricia and Robert Malcolmson, 2012

£25.00
World War II made a massive impact on life in Surrey. The diaries of Helen Lloyd of Albury and Viola Bawtree and Leonard Adamson of Sutton show its effects not only on the three diarists but on residents of rural and urban Surrey, including those, mainly from London, who found themselves in the county through a variety of voluntary and involuntary circumstances. Helen Lloyd's and Leonard Adamson's diaries also show the massive commitment of civilians in response to the demands of wartime, Helen Lloyd as Centre Organiser for Women's Voluntary Services in Guildford Rural District and Leonard Adamson as Air Raid Precautions Post Warden in Belmont. The diaries bring to life the impact of rationing, refugees, evacuees and, above all, the threat and actuality of bombing but also the reactions of the diarists and their friends, neighbours and relations to the challenging time in which they lived.
