Alan Griffin is a well known local historian and author of a number of illustrated books about Southam as well as his comprehensive story (Lest we Forget) about the men of Southam who gave their lives for King and Country in WW1.

The illustrated books are now out of print and sometimes change hands on sites like eBay for considerable sums. To date it has proved infeasible to reprint these books but Alan has now written a new illustrated book with the title “Wartime Southam 1939 – 1945”.
