Scope and content

In January 2013 Trish Cassidy wrote to Janet Rouse enclosing this scanned copy of a photograph of Bampton's Home Guard marching past The Talbot sometime during WWII and one of Rose Radband dressed as Britannia for a play. Her letter gives more detail of her own family and that of Rose Radband. She mentions Phil Addison has written an account of his 10 years on Bampton from age 7 to 17, 1940 to 1950 and this has since been published. It makes a very amusing read even if you don't know Phil but it gives a wonderful idea of what life was like both in Bampton and generally in those 10 years. It is on sale in the Vesey room in Bampton.
