War Baby

A Memory of Buckingham

I was born in Olney in May 1945. My mum had been sent from bombed out East London to a safe place to have her baby, me. I was taken back to London 2 weeks after I was born. The house where I was born had been set up for pregnant women to have their babies. I was told that the library in the house was designed by Sir John Soane. The house was later turned into a health farm.
I should love to go back to Olney for a visit one day, I am now 65 so it's a few moons ago when I was born there. If anyone ever reads this and knows any news of Olney area I should love to hear from you please.
