Wiltshire during World War II shown in new documentary


A new documentary examines Wiltshire's contribution to the Allies' victory in World War II.

The film traces Wiltshire's involvement with the war effort including a look at the training ground of Salisbury Plain to the garrison towns of Warminster, Bulford and Tidworth.

Dave Rogers from production company, 1st Take, said: "Although the county did experience bombing by the Luftwaffe, this was less prevalent than in many neighbouring areas.

"The story of Wiltshire during those darks days was more pro-active, with a great emphasis on test programmes, training and basically taking the fight to the enemy."
