Hutton Rudby in the Second World War

Not to be missed!  Check out the videos on the Facebook page of the Hutton Rudby and District Local History Society in which Malcolm McPhie interviews Maurice Atkinson about his memories of Hutton Rudby in the Second World War.

It's a priceless collection.  These are the topics that Maurice and Malcolm cover:

  • The radio announcement by Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain
  • Arrival of the evacuees 
  • The Army take over
  • The Home Guard
  • Army Cadet Force
  • The Air Raid Shelters
  • Search Lights
  • Village defences
  • Spitfires over the village
  • Damaged Army tank on Rudby Bank
  • Rifle practice in Leven Valley
  • Celebrations and bonfire on the Green
