Welcome to West Wales at War!

The aim of this site is to bring together people who lived in the area or have stories, memories or pictures of west Wales during the Second World War. At the moment I am researching for a book about Lampeter and the Teifi Valley during the Second World War bringing together pictures, documentation and personal recollections of residents to form a picture of the war years including evacuees, the Women’s Land Army, the arrival of Americans at Highmead House, Llanybydder and the evacuation of Wycliffe College from Gloucester to St David’s College, Lampeter.

I’d love to hear from anyone who would like to help, every little bit helps to build a picture of what the area used to be like, shops, entertainment and the community it’s all important!
