Quest for childhood memories of war.

A STUDENT has appealed for people who were children during the Second World War war to help her in a project.

Georgia Robinson's work will be about how war brought about major social changes, especially for children.

She said: "Ideally I'd be after information regarding experiences surrounding participation such as membership of scouts or guides, working the land, providing for the household such as making do and mend, how rationing and personal loss made it such a testing time and the psychological impact such as evacuation or emotional reactions to wartime. "I hope to illustrate the child's important experience of war in Yorkshire due to them so often appearing inconsequentially and as a small part of a bigger picture in the people's war and that children experienced and contributed to the peoples' survival of total war."

Georgia's email is g.robinson2@lancaster.ac.uk and her mobile number is 07719 674102.
