If Only Had Stayed In Hitchin! - a Memory of Hitchin.

Had my parents stayed in Hitchin in 1938, l would have attended the Grammar School in 1944-1945! So feel sad as I moved to Warlingham, Surrey and attended Oxted County Grammar School 1945-1950 and Redhill Secretarial College 1950-1951. Often feel I would have done much better at the all girls' school, rather than co-educational - but too late now! We lived in Blackhorse Lane, Hitchin for some 2-3 years before father was relocated in 1938 to Chelsham Bus Garage as Chief Engineer. Jill (nee Reeve)
