Martin Penrose will be helping his wife Maureen bring her new book to life an exciting concert at St. Thomas Church  Lymington.

The book is  based on the letters of Totton resident Edwin Henning. In 1940 the firm he worked for, Union Castle Line, moved the whole office from Southampton to Liverpool.  So the 17 year old Edwin went with them. After his death in 2015 Maureen found letters from him, during this time to his mum back in Totton.  The letters describe his life up there. In Liverpool - food, bombing, landlady's and work/social life while also writing concerns about his family back in Hampshire.

The letters show an insight to wartime life in a city he didn't know.  Some of the information may surprise your ideas of wartime.

Martin will be performing music from the book and Maureen will be telling stories of Edwin.  There will be an opportunity to obtain the book and have it signed by Maureen
