Jean was a youngster when the second world war broke out.
She describes her first sinister sighting of a German airship – a Zeppelin
She tells of her evacuation from Norfolk to Nottinghamshire early on in the war.
She’s got stories of deadly Doodlebugs and Bombings
Learn about the rather naughty practical joke she and her friend played on allied airmen.
And there’re yet more japes with the British Home Guard and the local American troops.
There’s a return to rationing as a young girl recalls her experiences
Learn how the Americans loved their Fish and Chips.
And how American cheer lifted the spirits of the British population
Finally, what an absolutely marvellous wartime birthday present for a young girl!
