Peter and fellow volunteer Robin Butler have given a number of talks at the museum discussing their war experiences. Robin as a member of a family who recieved evacuated children, and Peter as a London evacuee. Extracts from these talks will be appearing on the blog over the next few months so stay tuned for each installment.
