Bernard Cornwell grew up in Thundersley and went to school here. Does that make him a local author? Read his story in the forthcoming ‘Thundersley and Daws Heath – A History’, published by the Hadleigh and Thundersley Community Archive. He has read and agreed to three paragraphs that might be of interest to him and he would not change anything. He has also supplied what he called a ‘puff’, a line of praise for the cover of the book. I did not even know what a ‘puff’ was until I looked it up. Thank you, Bernard C. His latest book is a first for him, not a story but a history of Waterloo. Good luck.
‘From the close of that dreadful day in June 1815, everyone who took part in the slaughter knew that they had survived something significant.’
