Booklet details Imber childhood
A NEW booklet detailing the memories of a former resident of the abandoned village of Imber has been produced.
Dolly’s Imber provides a snapshot of the childhood experiences of Dolly Rebbeck before the village on Salisbury Plain was evacuated to be used for training purposes during the Second World War.
Her memories have been captured by her son-in-law Gordon Lewis.
Mr Lewis said: “This is not supposed to be a historically accurate account of Imber, but simply the experiences of a young girl who loved the village.”
A greeting card that reproduces a watercolour by Dolly’s other son-in-law, artist Clifford Meade, is also available and depicts the idyllic Imber cottage Dolly and her family lived in.
Both Dolly’s Imber and the greeting card can be purchased online at gordonlewis.co.uk or at selected Imber open days.
