The year is 1939, the year of the war. The place is Little Ness, a sandstone village in the shadow of the Shropshire hills. The author was then a boy of eleven, living with his family on their farm in the village. This is an account of the year when he was transplanted into a small-town grammar school, on the very day war began.
