This well-illustrated 76- page book is an expansion of the booklet written for the unveiling of the commemorative plaque at the site of the Fairford Polish Hostel in May 2009. So many people made contact with the author and supplied photographs and information that the author felt that these memories should be compiled together to make an extensive record and that this important part of our local history should not be lost for ever.
