As a child , my two older sisters formed a club to raise money for war funds and involve us in war support activities . All is detailed in a diary written by my older sister Evelynne all contained in an exercise book I still have complete with receipts from Uncle Mac of the BBC for money we had contributed - Parts of it are very funny as well as being poignant and bitter sweet . We feel that it deserves joining an archive but have been wondering how we should do this as it is far too long for me to type in - Any ideas ?
