Comments about this page

  • I was evacuated to WGC in 1944. I was pleased to see reference to Mac’s Club for boys which I joined.
    What disappointed me as far as the site is concerned is that there is no idea to which years these reminiscences refer.
    I now live near Chelmsford but would be happy to share my memories. How would I do so?
