Come and find out about Kew and Richmond in the Second World War with local author and researcher Simon Fowler.
Richmond and Kew played a large part in the Allied victory during the Second World War. It housed thousands of soldiers with key bases in Richmond Park and elsewhere. But for the town’s residents the war brought danger, dislocation and queues.
A series of enemy air raids during the winter of 1940 saw the deaths of 98 civilians and damage or destruction of ten thousand buildings. Do you have any wartime experiences, why not come along and share them with others.
