Writing an evacuee diary of jane

I have still heard nothing from my dear husband in Guernsey. It was lovely to reminisce with her and talk about family!

I later wondered if they pictured my home life as me sitting on a damp rock sucking limpets! Such kindness makes me want to weep with joy!

She also collected a few of the creatures and put them into a match box for evidence of the situation. So alive! Mrs Le Page told us that she has found a small flat for her and her baby.

Her husband is in the Army and she is very worried about him. Our school group arrived in Stockport at 5. My husband fears the Nazis will invade Guernsey, but I am not so sure, there is confusion all around. Hanging on for dear life, Lily gripped the sides as Marilyn — to her horror — leaped onto the seat in front and proceeded to steer them past cottages with roofs made of straw and shops with windows that were still in one piece.

I could hardly breathe, and ached from head to foot. Find out how you can use this. She lived in my parish in Guernsey. Like your mum, you are. Will not know the answer to my own question until the Germans are driven out of my beautiful island. But once they are well I want to find our own home to live in. We are being transferred to a village called Cheadle Hulme in a couple of days time. Such kindness makes me want to weep with joy! I wonder if my sister Adele left for England with the Ladies College when it was evacuated? God bless you and keep you! When are we going home to Guernsey to see him? I visited it this evening — large room where the shop window is, scullery and kitchen with two large bedrooms upstairs. I later wondered if they pictured my home life as me sitting on a damp rock sucking limpets! She said that her son had left Guernsey on 21 June with his school, and that she had followed on another boat a few days later, arriving in Stockport.

Gently, she reassured the little ones as someone led them to the local school where mattresses lined the stone floor and ladies handed out hot drinks.

She invited my children and I to tea on Saturday which was very nice of her.

Two letters arrived from Guernsey, posted before the bombing and occupation, are the writers still alive?! I assume the two groups would have been housed in different buildings! Missing my dear husband terribly. She lived in my parish in Guernsey. But what was that noise? Do you like the view? If its all the same to you I will keep my children with me! She died in the 70s, I am not sure how old. I am really missing my dear husband, parents and sister dreadfully.

I fear for his safety and the safety of the rest of our families there. I could hardly breathe, and ached from head to foot.
