A Shropshire Boyhood by Ron Davies


A Shropshire Boyhood by Ron Davies

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.

About the Author

Peter Davies was born in 1927 and grew up in north Shropshire. He was a farmer until the age of 22, a teacher for thirty-five years, and retired to play the piano and write.
