I Lost My Dad When I Was 3 And We Had To Leave

A Memory of Buckhurst Hill

My name was Pat Barringer then. My dad was burned in a lorry in 1949, he lived for about 6 months and then died, I have no memories at all as I was too young, does anybody remember the name Barringer? My mum was Beryl and my dad was Bert. I also have a sister who was 18 months at the time.
