Dorothy Squares

Hi, does anyone remember the Dorothy Squires/ Roger Moore relationship. I lived on Wonsant Rd, not too sure about the spelling as it has been a long time. I stayed next door to Dorothy at our friend's house and I remember them well. I have resided in Canada since 1965, so it would it would be nice if someone out there remembers that period in time, regards Clive Jeffrey.
