Barcombe, East Sussex during WW2

Postby hildergen » Mon Dec 09, 2013 9:45 pm

I am researching a book about Barcombe near Lewes, East Sussex during the second world war. I would be particularly interested to hear any memories of the large numbers of Canadian troops based in the area, and of any photographs of people or events in Barcombe from 1939-1945.

I aim to record the stories of the men named on the village war memorial, and also the memories of those who lived here during those turbulent times.

I'm assuming you have already made contact with the local history and archive people?

Have you tried the relevant family history societies? There are several in the area and they will almost certainly have a lot of details which I'm sure they would be happy to share with you.
