Assistant Matron - a Memory of Wickham.
I was there with Miss Glenday the headmistress, there were three assistant matrons and one matron. My name was Moira Dibben and I was one of the assistant matrons , I am now 80. I remember a girl called Angela Porter who had asthma..I was in charge of the little ones and many of these children had fathers who were in the services and many miles away.I felt it was a very sad life for these little ones.I can remember the tennis court punishment in all weathers made to walk around. I also remember the food was terrrible ..not enough by far .I stood it for two years and then just walked out !
