Barbara McElroy on ‘A Suffolk Bevin Boy’
This is the story of Barbara’s father’s experiences of being conscripted to go down the mines in WW2. With thousands of others he expected to go into the forces but instead was conscripted by ballot to go down the mines, NO excuses allowed. Besides his personal story, the talk looks at the reasons for the scheme, the conditions down the mines, subsequent problems and tells of its impact on those serving.
