Hi everybody,

during the last 10 years of his live my father wrote his memoires and it turned out to be a very entertaining book. It covers his roles as a fire watcher during the Blitz and his time as a head-ache operator in the Royal Navy. I have set up a website with excerpts from the book, the website is continously being expanded with interesting stories from his memoires. It would be great if you could take a look and let me know what you think of his writing.
You can find the site at World War 2 Memoires - The Memoires of Peter Hammond

Thanks for your support.

Thank you for sharing your father's memoires, Bernard. You have done a nice job on the website. It is an excellent tribute to your father.

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.

Welcome to the forum Bernard, Looks like some interesting reading. I read the first story and will return for the rest!

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
