Friday video: A Stately Home at War

Friday, March 20, 2015
Loretta reports:

As many of our readers are aware, a number of Great Britain’s stately homes were requisitioned for government use during WWII. 

Spetchley House is one of these.  Here's  a short, poignant video about its wartime experience.

I am new to your Blog and I am so enjoying it. Since I was born in 1937, I was around while this was going on. I can't believe that it took me to age 78 to realize this for I have long admired the "Stately Homes". I do tend to skim along the surface of life, and thank you for finding a way to share so much with so many. Gwen

Once again a blog bringing us back into a time so important to our lives. I was a little younger tnan this woman when I was home in our NY apartment worried about my father out patrolling the darkened streets as an Air Raid Warden. Two worlds.
