Message 1 - Strict Parents

Posted on: 06 September 2005 by Audrey Lewis - WW2 Site Helper

For Miriam Tomlinson,
Thanks again for your story. Yes,our parents were very strict. I had to be home by 10 pm. My father was waiting for me at the gate. He used to say much later, "I trusted you - but not the boys."
I think our parents must have loved us a lot don't you think?
All good wishes,
Audrey Lewis
