  • Abstract

    Where the local troops were stationed during World War 2. The American troops arriving ‘blacks and the whites didn’t get on very well together’. Whist drives and dances. No specific VE Day celebrations in the village. Left school at 14. Evacuees, some left quickly as they couldn’t cope with the country. Alterations to the school.
