Fragments A Collection in Words and Pictures Volume Two: The Second World War Home Front

Over nearly fifty years, the author has built up an extensive collection of memorabilia from the First and Second World Wars. The author gives talks to school and adult groups about the First World War and Second World War Home Front using his collection to illustrate these talks. This book looks at selected items from the private collection, providing a narrative about the original artefacts that also gives an insight into the life of the individuals who owned them.

Fragments Volume Two is intended as a salute to those who survived the war on the Home Front and as a memorial to those who did not.

About the author: David James Parker has been interested in military history from an early age. His previous publications with Redshank include Missing, the story of two brothers who were lost in World War Two, and Fragments Volume One.

David started collecting items of militaria at ten years old when he found some medals in a bin. He has been giving talks about the First and Second World Wars for many years, using his extensive collections to illustrate these. David served in the Royal Observer Corps for twelve years before joining the Army Cadet Force as an instructor. He has also had a number of magazine articles published.
