Greenway's D Day connections

Greenway was requisitioned during World War Two and used first to house child evacuees, and then from 1944 to 1945 by the US Coastguard in the run up to the D Day landings. On Thursday 6 June at Greenway we'll be sharing some of these stories, and featuring writers with wartime novels from the Literary Festival.
