Reared In A Strangers Nest

An Evacuee’s Story Of WW 2

by Michael Wetton

Mr Wetton, from London, will soon be publishing his memories of his 15-months’ stay in Wichenford as an evacuee – from June 1940 until Sept 1941. Following his stay in Wichenford, he moved to Bransford, where he stayed until the end of the war (1945) and beyond, his home in London having been destroyed by a bomb. Over the phone he read me the flyer for his book, as follows: –

“Michael was reared in several different strangers’ nests during  WW2. We journey with the confused 6-year-old from suburban London to the Essex coast and, later, to Worcestershire. In new surroundings he grows adoptive roots, but never forgets he is a Londoner. His experiences and escapades during his evacuation revealed the boy, warts and all.”  Michael Wetton is a retired schoolteacher. He lives in NE London, bordering on Epping Forest. He has had poems and short stories published in local magazines and articles published in national magazines.  200 pages; 38,000 words

Price:  to be decided, but hopefully to be in single rather than double figures. All profits from the sale of this book will be divided equally between St Laurence Church (Wichenford) Fabric Fund, and St John the Baptist (Bransford) Chapel Fabric Fund.

Available Michael Wetton  304 Enterprsie House King’s Head Hill, Chingford, London  E4 7ND

Please contact Mr Wetton direct if you are interested in buying his book.
