FAM­ILY TIES

History Revealed - - HAVE YOUR SAY -

My wife bought me the lat­est is­sue of your mag­a­zine, as I have re­cently taken an in­ter­est in find­ing out more about my fam­ily his­tory dur­ing World War II, and Dunkirk was fea­tured. My grand­fa­ther Al­fred Ge­orge Hol­li­field was a mem­ber of The Welsh Guards, and he fought as a rear guard dur­ing the ac­tion at Dunkirk. How­ever, he was cap­tured dur­ing fight­ing and even­tu­ally held for six long years as a pris­oner of war in Nazi-oc­cu­pied Poland.

I found your mag­a­zine very in­for­ma­tive and the vast range of sub­jects kept me read­ing from cover to cover. Your mag­a­zine has kept me en­thused about his­tory, and has in­spired me to find out more about my grand­fa­ther’s fas­ci­nat­ing wartime ex­pe­ri­ences. Owen Hol­li­field, Caer­philly
