  • Abstract

    Part 4 (Tape 2 Side B): Dorcas describes her second school, St Margaret’s School, Croydon, Surrey. Dorcas praises the Guide and Scout movement. The children never went out of school to the shops - sweets were sent to them. They spent their pocket money on subs at their meetings and collection for church. Dorcas describes in painful detail the callipers nearly all the children wore. They were only taken off at night to go to bed.
