Latymer school was billeted in Richings Park at the beginning of the war, and there was also the workforce of Hawker's to be housed. Since everyone had identity cards the size of family in relation to the house was known. The Billeting Officer took up the spare rooms and quartered war workers in many of the houses of Richings Park. Some residents found it difficult but most made the best of it as their lodgers had no choice either, being directed labour.
