dc.descriptionIn this interview, with pupils from Haddington primary school, J Bruce Cunningham talks about his childhood in Haddington during World War 2. Answering questions from the children, Mr Cunningham recalls many aspects of life during the War, such as the different kinds of gas masks, bombing raids, rationing and making friends with the troops who were often stationed in the town. He relates a number of stories, such as telling the children about the time a Heinkel bomber pursued by 3 spitfires flew over the Neilson park when he and his friends were playing football. He also recalls family connections to the war effort and remembered how, due to all the young men being away to War, his schoolteachers were often women or older men.
