Childhood memories of Halesworth

We were just an ordinary working class family, with five children. I was the eldest and during the holidays I’d take the others out of the house, so that our mother could get on. We walked all around the back roads, to Wissett and beyond. I’d collect wildflowers and press them in my books. Everyone shared what they had – if you were short of bread, someone in the street would give you half a loaf.
