Happy Xmas

A Memory of Bolton Upon Dearne

I was staying at my Aunt Margaret's, and I met a lovely young man called Charley (Chuck )Senior. I lost touch with him soon after. I recently came across an old photo of Chuck, me, Maureen and my cousin Brian Westcott. I had the best Xmas of my life. Are any of you still around? I believe it was Wath-on-Dearne, where everybody lived then. It was so long ago. I remember it was a small place and the train had to specially stop at the small station to let us off. It was the first time I had been away from home, and the first and strangely the last Xmas I spent away from family.
Ah, happy days. Ruth
