What a Resource!

For all you primary source lovers/WWII buffs out there, you should read this from the WW2 People’s War archives.  It’s an account of the ordinary life of one young woman in England during and after World War II.  She worked in a small shop, though she did apply for the Land Army.  It seems that, at 18, she was considered too old to join!  I love the way that she remembers and carefully explains some of the small details of everyday life.  (One prime example is how the currency system worked.)  I hope that you enjoy this resource as much as I did.  And have fun in the archives; I love reading through the different stories.
