Sittingbourne in the Second World War

ISBN: 978-1-911662-13-6
Written by Helen Allinson and Allen Whitnell
The people of Sittingbourne and area watched the Battle of Britain fought overhead. The children could soon identify enemy planes, the farmers of the surrounding villages tended their orchards assisted by Land Girls and POWs, women worked in the town’s factories whose output was adapted to help the war effort. Everyone pulled together making what contribution they could towards defeating the enemy. Spirits were kept up by frequent fund-raising dances, whist-drives and concerts whilst plans were made for better housing in the future. Here we read of those years in the words of the people themselves and the reports of the local paper.
