A very proud grandson Stephen Hewson told Nettleton & Moortown WI the story of his grandfather Albert Rhoades of Market Rasen in World War Two.

Taken prisoner in the North African desert, Albert was working on farms in Northern Italy when the country capitulated.

Albert’s experiences of friendship with the local population, both then and since the war through their descendents, is heartwarming and told in Stephen’s book ‘Memories of War, Letters of Hope’.

At next month’s meeting, in the Methodist Schoolroom on Thursday May 8, there will be a talk on The Painted Tree by Zoe Casson.
