Ww2 In Bratton

A Memory of Bratton

As a child living in Bratton during the war there was no sense that it was going on lucky for us, but I do remember a goup of people coming into the village and instructing us how to take care of any injuries that might happen. They finished it off with a demonstration of how to deal with a incendiary bomb, these were mostly made from magnesium and when burning, if you sprayed water on them, they exploded - good to know.
