Memories of Langwith

The lady in the picture is probably Dorothy Emery. She lived on Devonshire Drive with her parents, Reginald and Edith Florence (nee Bishop) Emery, and her older sister Elsie.

Is there some sort of pavillion across from those shops? I used to go there to the St Johns Ambulance brigade with my sisters Ann and Roslyn in the 1960s before my family went back to Scotland. They were the best years of my life. I brought my sons down for a visit and they still talk about how friendly the Langwith people are.

My name is Peggy Knight (nee cook). I have fond memories of being evacuated to Langwith aged 14, it changed my whole life as I met a boy who later became my lovely husband, he lived with his parents in Devonshire Drive. We moved to Suffolk to live and my three children had some wonderful holidays in Langwith with their grandparents. I would love to share my memories with others.

Memories of Langwith re Peggy Knight: I think you lived at No. 24.We lived at No.29. Was your husband named Hardy? My name is Bowen.My wife has been trying to find friends from school who were evacuated to Langwith from Lowestoft. Regards, Idris (Taffy)
