This book shows what it was like to go to school during the Second World War from the day it started until VE day.

Author Biography

Paul Mould was educated at Boston Grammar School and started as a cub reporter at the Boston Guardian in 1950. He left to join the family bakers and grocers business, which closed in 1969 when the building of a new bridge led to the decline of the High Street in Boston. He became a travelling salesman, covering a radius of fifty miles around Boston until 1983, when he started dealing in printing machinery. He organized exports to India and Nigeria and acted as auctioneer at monthly auctions from 1988-1991. After going to hospital in a diabetic coma in 1994, he decided to write cinema reference books and became a publisher. He has written a sports column in the Lincolnshire Standard since 1978 and a nostalgia column in the Boston Target since 1994.
