Warminster 1940 - a Memory of Westbury Leigh.

I lived in Warminster from 1940 till early the 1950s. My grandfather's family have lived in Warminster over 100 years. Went to Trowbridge Girls High.
I remember the large house near where I lived that the Americans lived in Lupeans. Molly Butt's store, Mr. Syms store near the Cock pub, used to help him count food coupons, he has a son Ralph who taught me to ride my 2 wheeler. Very sorry to leave and return to London after the war. My friends still live there.
