Adolf Hitler: Milton’s part in his downfall!
Like countless other small communities up and down the country, Milton Malsor found that it was not immune from the effects of WWII. This 43 minute audio CD gives a sense of what wartime meant for Milton as recalled by six villagers: Edie Borley and Marjory Carter, whose husbands were called up into the Royal Navy and Army respectively; Joy Meakins, Ken Johnson and Bob Kingston, who were schoolchildren at the time; and Tom Paul who joined 41 Commando and saw action in Sicily, Italy and Europe – including (as he describes it) the bedlam of D-Day!

The Story of Milton Malzor
The Story of Milton Malzor, by the then Rector – Rev B E Evans MA, was first published as a hardback in 1924; very few copies of the original edition survive. This paperback re-print was published in December 1997 and has made Rev Evans work more widely accessible. Containing over 300 pages of text and illustrations, it chronicles the history of Milton from the time of the Domesday Book through to the end of the First World War. This edition is limited to a single printing of 500 copies, so “when they’re gone, they’re gone”!
