There is still a mass of ephemeral material available from this period but I have restricted the content, as far as possible, to that with some specific local referemce.

Letters from Lowestoft - the weekly local news sent from a Lowestoft resident A. J. Turner (a retired wholesale fish merchant and my great grandfather) to his son (my grandfather), from November 1940 until the end of the war (too many pages to keep it within this site so on a child site - access from the above link).

Royal Naval Patrol Service - a brief account of the Royal Naval presence at five 'stone frigates' in Lowestoft during WW2 can be found on the RNPS Associaton's website.

Air Raid Precautions - a considerable source of ephemeral material from some very ephemeral leaflets through pamphlets, paperback and hardbound booklets.

ARP Equipment - a leaflet of some of the stock being offered by R. J. Pryce & Co. in Suffolk Road.

Evacuation scheme - notices to householders about the scheme to evacuate children from the cities to quieter areas.

Other leaflets - leaflet distributed to households for purposes other than the above.
