Wartime memories – John Church

John talks mainly about all the good food they had to eat during the war as his father had a big plot of land to grow produce and keep chickens and rabbits. He also remembers Italian prisoners of war who worked on Pageant Road and built a water tank, American soldiers who were billeted in St Albans and watching the gliders going over for the D-Day landings.
