LIFE IN CORNWALL 1943-46
Extracts from the West Birton Newspaper
edited by Catharine Ince

This book, it is hoped, will jog the memories of those of us that lived through the war years, and explain to those of us who were not born a little of how life was lived in those days. It is, as it has to be, a purely personal choice of articles, which appeared in the West Briton, or to give it its full title, The West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser. The book is not meant to be read from cover to cover but dipped into!
During the war there were a great many activities which were suppressed by the Government and did not appear in the papers – where the bombs fell, where the R.A.F. stations were, the use of seaports, especially Falmouth, Penzance and Newlyn and what went on there, the work of the police, the Home Guard, the A.R.P. personnel.
In the 1930’s fewer people had cameras and films during the war were almost unobtainable to the public and, because so many places were out of bounds, very few photographs exist today. The West Briton is only available on microfilm and the quality of the images is not good, so I have been fortunate in being able to access the Ellis Collection to illustrate this book.

We follow her from her first sexual experience with a woman to when she is a fully fledged swinger going on ‘lifestyle’ holidays.
