About the Author

Born in Daybrook, Nottingham, in 1955, Roger Leivers eventually moved to the Cambridgeshire town of Godmanchester in 1989. Here he became involved in volunteer groups, and launched annual local historical war walks to raise money for the local museum and the upkeep of the town’s war memorial. This led him to be involved with The Porch Museum, with a special interest in the effect both wars had on the town and its people.
