War Baby - a Memory of Ditchling.
My mother was evacuated , and I was born in Greenhedges, Westmeston on 22/12/1940. Servicemen came from a nearby camp - USA I believe - and one made the comment “Looks just like Winston Churchill” 😂 I might add, I was due on Christmas Day, but the Dr. didn’t want to come out - so I was induced! A towel was pulled tight under Mum’s boobs, and a nurse laid across her to force me out! BARBARIC😂😂 that’s why I’ve got big, wide feet!
