I am writing this on behalf of my Grandmother, Mrs Jessie Bone (nee Stubbs):
' I was born in a small village called Hindon in Wiltshire in 1927. We lived at Hill Terrace. There were 6 of us children, me, my sisters Elsie and Joan and my brothers Bill, Tuff and Perce. My Dad was in the merchant navy. During the war I worked in munitions where I became a semi skilled worker. I met a soldier, John Bone (known as Jock) who was stationed in Hindon. He was in the 5th Survey Regiment of the Royal Artilley and served in Italy and North Africa. We were married when the war ended. My brothers and father were all in the navy and my cousins also fought in the war. I consider myself lucky that all my immediate family and my husband survived the war. One of my cousins, Raymond, was killed when he parachuted into norther france on June 20th as part of the D Day invasion. I'm writing on this website to share my memories with others and to read and share other people's experiences'
