I left Whitstable in 1954. My reason for coming here was that, at
one time during the war, my sister Joan and I were being evacuated
to Canada. Just before we were to leave, the "The City of
Benares", a large passenger ship full of evacuees, was sunk
by a U-boat. That stopped that idea! But I had looked at the books
and the concept stayed with me until 1954 when I came over in
safety. I have stayed here ever since.
I had worked at Canterbury Cathedral for six years working on the
stained glass. (If you have any interest, go to one of my web sites
to see some of the work I have done in Canada).
