I hope you have enjoyed sharing them with me. Fred Elding takes us on a journey through his memories - starting in 1920s Lincolnshire, passing through the early 1930s in Hertfordshire working on his family farm, and leading up to life on the Home Front during the Second World War. Life as a farmer during this time had its advantages, as being on the reserved occupation list meant that they were exempt from conscription. However, demand for food was immense and so the life of a farmer was often arduous and strained. Freds recollections bring us right up to the present day and it soon becomes clear just how much has changed over the past eighty years.
