Thornycroft Society News Bulletin 64

Just arrived- interesting read as usual with a nice range of subjects- particularly some extracts from The Sid Wilkinson Story -A lad from the Lea, which covers the period during the Second World War and immediately thereafter, when he worked for Thornycroft’s at their Basingstoke factory.

Written by the man himself at the insistence of his daughters, it is an excellent example of this genre which shows how robust our Fathers and Mothers were in the face of what life threw at them  during the 2nd World War. The piece is complimented by some excellent accompanying photographs provided by Kempshott History Group.
