Hutted Camp (266)
Vowler Road Rocket
I have read the article on the camp at Dry Street; nothing further to add to that but you may be interested to learn my Sister-in-Law, Barbara Wellington had a German prisoner to Xmas lunch. This upset older sister Joan whose husband Fred was a prisoner of war, spent mostly on a farm in Austria after a long march over mountains.
My cousin Ivan Emson, who was in the Fleet Air Arm and trained in Canada was flown home specially after the bungalow was damaged by a rocket and his father died from the shock. Yes the bungalow ‘Shelagh’ on the corner Vowler Road and Berry Lane.
Joan White of ‘Trecarne’; her father was stationed in Germany. Her father was half brother to my father Fred Waters. Her mother Alice, half sister to my mother, so we do have a close relationship. TV soaps have nothing on my family!
