|"He's a mighty lucky feller" : American troops in town during World War II|
Got on with siblings. Recalls staying with the Carmonts, given five shillings a week to put towards clothes. Didn't go on family holidays but occasional picnics at the lake, short stays with extended family.
Food- "ordinary... very plain meals". Sunday roast. Scarcity of bananas and oranges.
Recalls butcher and baker coming to the door on Saturday mornings. Mostly home remedies used during illness.
