I was born in Tavistock in 1941, but my family lived in Bere Alston until 1947. We lived in a house called The Firs, but perhaps it is no longer there. My father was the doctor and during the Second World War, the local inhabitants petitioned Parliament so that their doctor would not be called up into the army. The end of the war was celebrated in the village and I remember that the streets were filled with long tables for a huge Victory Party.
