Evacuated To Ashtead 1940 - a Memory of Ashtead.

There are only a few things I remember about being billited to live with a lovely family Mr. & Mrs Hood and their two sons Trevor my age ( six) and Keith a couple of years older. Both the Hoods were artists . Their detached house was on Leatherhead Road. They were lovely people and I enjoyed the few months I was there. I attended Bowood School, is it still there?. I went back to Buckhurst Hill and my home just as the Phoney War turned to a reality, and the Blitz began
