D Day Celebrations – article submitted by member Angela B.

The recent D Day celebrations brought to mind once again the Second World War and the hardships which the older generation in Britain had to endure.  Not least the need to feed ourselves. The Dig for Victory Campaign played a significant role in providing people with food.

But with so few of the war time generation left alive, now is the last time we have to collect their memories and knowledge of local gardening and the Dig for Victory Campaign. If you have any memories or knowledge of local gardening then please email them to the usual cabahshortisoc@gmail.com. Similarly if you are a younger person perhaps you could ask any older relative or friend to share their wartime gardening experiences with you? We could eventually put them on the CABAHS website.
