Our Victoria County History group, together with the Heritage Society and local history group, put on a wonderful display in St James Hall, Clacton yesterday.
The various exhibitions focused on the coastline during the war - and there was enormous interest from young and old, with lots of people packed into the hall. What I particularly liked was listening to people who were growing up in Clacton during the war giving their own accounts.
Well done to Roger Kennell, Colin Preen, Rachel Baldwin, Norman Jacobs and dozens of others for putting on such a great event.
