IN AM attempting to write a historical novel loosely based on my grandparents' life in Fingerpost/Parr during the Second World War and would be happy and grateful if any of your readers may be able to help me with memories of life back then.

Stories, humorous or sad, air raids, characters, shops, war work, call up's etc. My e-mail address is
