Lingfield - a Memory of Lingfield.
Jean Chambers mentioned the bomb dropping on the school in 1943 - my parents shop (John Banks Outfitters) was almost opposite the school and I was born at the end of 1943 being given my second name of "Heather" after Heather Lumsden who was killed in the school and was a good friend of my parents.
Jean also mentioned the bomb that was found in 2002 at the bottom of what had been their garden. I wonder whether we lived next door to her. We lived for a time (about 1948/50 I should think) in Mount Pleasant Road - just before the corner next to a large house in big grounds and I understand this is where the bomb was found.
I see from looking at google maps that there is now a house in the grounds between that house and ours.
We left Lingfield in about 1960/61 and I now live in New Zealand but I have great memories of growing up in Lingfield Village.
My uncle, Syd Hooker, worked in the grocers and the Cabin behind the Cage.
