Think it was written in 70s. Written from the perspective of a boy that lives in britain in what he thinks is WWII, as the story unfolds it turns out that he was never born but is a clone/replicant and him and others like him are part of some experiment living in a WWII scenario, he starts to uncover the truth of his existence.

Think it was more of a teen scifi book

Cant remember title or author, anyone help?

It suddenly came to me

A rag, a bone and a hank of hair.
A rag, a bone and a hank of hair was by Nicholas Fisk and was first published in 1980.

A thrilling futuristic novel set at the end of the 22nd century. The government is cloning new people and has manufactured a 1940s wartime family who are unaware that nothing they know is real.
Our hero is sent to monitor these 'Reborns' and gradually becomes aware of a horrible underlying secret. A brilliant plot twist at the end turns the book on its head.
An exciting sci-fi novel which will appeal especially to boy readers, with the topical subject of cloning.
