Minchinhampton Transportees by Helen Wright
OUR LATEST PUBLICATION:
The Great War story of the Stroud Valleys – including Minchinhampton, Brimscombe, Rodborough, Stonehouse, Chalford and the surrounding villages, as well as Stroud itself – is told in contemporary documents, reminiscences recorded over time, and modern research, all vividly illustrated by postcards, photographs and other World War I ephemera. A section explores the Great War from the Minchinhampton Perspective, not just the names on the war memorials but the experiences of those in the town at the time. A further chapter looks at the development and final abandonment of the Australian Air Force Minchinhampton Aerodrome in the years 1918 – 1919. The cover depicts the Victory Parade, in July 1919, in Minchinhampton High Street.
The book can be purchased from bookshops in the area or the Museum in the Park.
