Marlborough, Treacle Bolly In 1941 - a Memory of Marlborough.
I was the youngest boy (8 years old) at the City of London School sharing Marlborough College as evacuees from London during the Second World War. I, together with a few other youngsters, had a 'camp' in Treacle Bolly. One high on the hill on the left-hand side in a tree root and one further in down by the river. At that age, and during a war, I can't say that they were the happiest days of my life but, neverthelee, quite memorable. I was billetted, with 7 other boys, with a Mr Sprawson and Miss Burridge at 7 Silverless Street. Nostalgia has set in!
