2017 October 12 – Peter Cox

At the monthly meeting of 12 October 2017 Peter Cox read excerpts from his book Growing Up in London. The book is based on interviews with over 100 U3A members, aged between 75 and 95. For the audience of about 100 members of the Crouch End & District U3a Peter’s talk was a nostalgic trip, evoking many memories of growing up in war-time London, and the austerity period thereafter … memories of life at home and at school,  illness (before the National Health Service, food, shopping, the outbreak of war, the Blitz,  being evacuated from London, military service, leisure entertainment, and love and marriage.
