My wife Alma (nee Rodhouse) was evacuated as a child to Middleton on Sea, with her mum and another lady. They were billeted in a railway carriage in the grounds of a large house. The owners lived in London, and Alma's mum and the other lady acted as caretakers. Alma remembers little of that time, but she was told that this was the coach where the 1918 armistice was signed. Can anyone remember one A .Hitler visiting the area after the fall of France? As he was supposed to have signed a similar document in similar circumstances in 1940.
