Notes from a POW and a Present-Day Journey of Discovery -Fiona Cameron & Carole Grant
On 30 January 1940, aged just twenty-one, Private Allan Cameron of the 51st Highland Division set sail for Le Havre as part of the British Expeditionary Force, sent to defend France against a German invasion. In less than five months he would be captured and held as a prisoner of war.
Diary notes he made during this time would lie hidden in an old suitcase until nineteen years after his death.
When his daughters unexpectedly came across the now fragile notebooks in 2011 it led them to embark upon a quest to find out more about their father's wartime past as a Nursing Orderly in the Royal Army Medical Corps.
A remarkable chain of events followed in which history came vividly to life and the links between the past and present were gradually drawn together.
Lemonade Tonight tells Allan's personal account of his wartime experiences and also his daughters' fasinating and poignant journey of discovery
