My Memories.

placeholder gif[Brixham Harbour - Preparing for D Day]

A memory of the Second War: During the war there were often parades to honour our troops. Once the parade was over the troops quickly moved off back to their barracks. This was particularly fortunate on one occasion.- I stood outside the museum with my family watching the soldiers marching by. Then we started for home. A few minutes later we heard the sound of bombing. My family and the troops had just escaped a German aeroplane that flew over to drop bombs on the town. By some miracle no one was hurt in this raid.
