We Happy Few: Wartime Writings 1939-1945

We Happy Few book coverRichard Wicker was raised in Mayfield and worked at the dairy in Glynde. He was a volunteer RAF sergeant, shot down over Germany in August 1940 and held as a POW until the end of the war.

On returning home, like many veterans, he would never mention what he had been through.  Instead, he wrote in secret. Later, his family stumbled upon the memoir, and combining it with his letters home and entries from his war logbook, they published his account as a book.

This book is available from Richard Wicker’s grandson David Bradford – editor of the book and LHG member for £8, or for £9.99 either from Skylark Bookshop or online from the publisher Troubador.
