I assisted Owen with the editing of the diocesan magazine, Ely Ensign, from about March 2003,

At the time, I was supporting his youngest son with his GCSE’s, so was a regular visitor to the Spencer-Thomas home.

Given my interest in the two World Wards, there were a series of articles, featuring Conington church, which I found of particular interest:

And two articles about the bombing of St Paul’s Church on Hills Road, Cambridge in 1941:
