Arthur Sainsbury, Trevor Jenkins's cousin, in RAF uniform, 1940s Item Reference : cny02845
Trevor was called up in January 1940. He went into The Royal Artillery initially, and was sent to France, ending up with a large group of French refugees, fleeing from the Germans. At one point they met with a group of British officers, who requisitioned their rifles. The officers then gave Trevor and his colleagues pick handles, with which to defend themselves and the hundreds of French citizens. Trevor finally arrived at Cherbourg, and boarded a ship. He had no idea where he was bound until he was half-way across the English Channel, and realised he was going home.
