Texte du rabat

Edwin and his parents were bombed out of their house in Southampton in 1940. This triggered a series of events which led them to move to a village outside the city nearer his mother's sister. Just weeks later, seventeen-year-old Edwin moved with the shipping company he worked for, The Union Castle Shipping Line, to Liverpool. At least once a week he wrote a letter home to his mother describing his life in Liverpool - his lodgings, working life, food, traveling, and his musical interests etc. The letters also highlight his concerns for family and friends in the light of heavy bombing in both Southampton and Totton. Despite his young age, Edwin shines through as a very focused and determined young man. The power of his descriptions in the letters allows the reader to experience his life in a very different place to that for which his upbringing had prepared him.
