Description

Published date: 13 January 2016

The preparations had been made well in advance. Now Britain was at war, and as the uniformed army prepared to face the enemy, a civilian army was mobilised at home. National Registration Officers, registrars, and 65,000 enumerators set about the huge task of registering every man, woman and child in a single weekend. It all went remarkably smoothly. This is the story of the 1939 Register for England and Wales, how it was taken, and what happened next.

This talk is also available as a podcast.

    I do agree with all of the ideas you have introduced on your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for novices. Could you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
