This story was submitted to the People's War website by Sue Sutton on behalf of Alan Rodliffe, the author and has been added to the site with his permission. The author fully understands the site's terms and conditions.

We had two evacuees from Finsbury Park in London. Eventually mother and younger son came down to stay.

My mother said you don't have a London accent and she said 'no I'm a German' she'd married young before the war. My mother kept it quiet, but word got out and people didn't like us keeping a German under our roof. She was a lovely woman. We've kept in touch ever since.

They were Marie, John and David Sharp.

I still meet John although the others have since died.
