Early Life in Laindon 1940 to 1947. Part 2.
Living next to the Arterial Road.
Beginning of June 1944.
In June 1944 we were living in a rented bungalow called Daphdolvia, on the Arterial Road. It was situated between Pound Lane and Church Road and just past the track leading to St Nicholas Church.
By June 4th the Canadian Army were camped out on the verge with their equipment, waiting to embark on what we now know as ‘D Day’. The line of vehicles seemed to stretch for ever. My mother and grandmother made tea by the gallon……all very exciting to a 4 year old!
