Bishopsbourne School

A Memory of Bishopsbourne

I loved school. There was one teacher, Miss Castle, she lived with her sister in a house attached to the school. One day Miss Castle gave us all a small Union Jack flag and told us to stand beside the school wall as someone important was coming by and sure enough along came Winston Churchill, we all waved our flags and he gave us the V for victory sign. The purpose of his visit was to inspect a railway gun (The Bosche Buster) which was housed in an old railway tunnel further up the road.
