As you think of Victory in Europe it is worth a flick through the pages put together by LBHF Archivist.
Also the Flikr collection.
There is an article on the parks during and after the war.
As you would expect it only gets the briefest of mentions in the last pages of our book Fulham in the Second World War.

Our latest Newsletter is now posted on site and contains a message from our Chairman. In view of the current COVID19 regulations it seems unlikely that we will meet for a while but we have included an outline of our plans should the regulations be slackened. Meanwhile we have added a quiz, the answers to which lie in your memories of visits and also appear on our website or in newsletters. Have fun and stay safe.

We had a fantastic and fascinating talk last Tuesday about how the history of this enigmatic period of the Roman story is brought to life through the medium of podcasts. Robin Pierson researches, writes and performs these pieces to the microphone and most of the nearly 200 are freely available on the web with some supporting material on the website https://thehistoryofbyzantium.com .
You missed an excellent talk but can dive into podcasts right now look it up.
Don’t forget the next event is our AGM with a talk about the Houses on the Original London Bridge on 3 March at 7:30pm see Newsletter for details.
