Growing Up during World War Two: a pair of talks

Growing Up during World War Two:
A talk by two octogenarians from opposite ends of the world.
One was born in 1929 in the U.K., and experienced the ravages of the blitz. The other was born in 1936 in British Malaya; her father was a spy for the Indian National Army, allied to the Japanese and fighting for the independence of India from the British Empire.
They will give a pair of talks describing their experience of growing up before, during and after the War years, followed by a time for questions.
This is a unique opportunity for our children to hear living witnesses from this momentous era of history, from two very different points of view.
