Strete, Slapton, Start Bay, Beeson, Beesands, Frogmore, Dartmouth

From : Ian Phillips for BASH

Pam Wills spent her wartime childhood in the Slapton area. She recalls American soldiers doing the school pick up from Beeson in the jeep and giving the local children sweets and comics,

She says "They were very good to us... I remember one of them told me he was 27 but he had a sister the same age as us, and it was nice to be able to come and talk to us."


This is one of a number of recording made by Blackawton & Strete History (BASH) Group for the AONB in 2010.
