Effingham Local History Group

presents a screening of
Bookham Film Club’s

 

‘We Also Served’


Monday 16 May 2016

Barnes Wallis Room, King George V Hall

Browns Lane, Effingham KT24 5ND

This Community-made film about the lives of residents of Bookham during World War Two was released to great local acclaim in January 2016 and is of great interest as an example of what local history can achieve. Former ELHG member Roy Mellick was Film Consultant to the production team, and Tony Page, who lived in Bookham as a young lad, makes several presentations to camera. The contributions of memories by today’s residents are eye-opening and certainly very moving, particularly when describing relationships between young Bookham residents and Canadian soldiers stationed in the area. There are many resonances with how things undoubtedly would have been in Effingham.

Running time: approx. 1 hour.
