The team spoke to people from towns and villages including Coggeshall, Kelvedon and Dummow, and needs permission from them or their families to digitally copy the interviews and share them more widely.

Local names include:

Coggeshall - George Alfred Ernest (Sam) Birkin, Douglas Arthur Blackwell, Geoffrey Blackwell, Bill and Daphne Carter, Flora Cowlin, Jack Drane, Vera Fenton, George Humphries, Cecil Potter, Alf Reynolds, Anthony George Saunders, Janet Saunders.

Kelvedon - Peggy Blackwell, Len Jones, Fred Joyce, Graham and Joyce Murdy, Reg Pye, William Squirrell and Albie Wilkes.
