This is an image from the fascinating British Pathe newsreel on Stockton, in 1942, where thousands of books where placed in the street for pulping and the war effort. I believe the above image is my late father Ron Davies who was living in Stockton at the time aged about 13 – the boy last in line. I am interested in whether this was documented in the newspaper at the time and that the listing may confirm the boy participants? Alternatively there may be reference in scout/boy brigade histories or Council Mayoral Archive? Any advice appreciated.
