Evacuation - a Memory of Yalding.

I was evacuated to Yalding during the war, this was to be my childhood days and as I was with a family who had a son about my age. It was fantastic and those 4 years I will never forget. My dream is to return and relive my childhood, travel to the places I remember so well, and to meet those who are still with us. I would love to have a friend from Yalding that I can stay in contact with, by email or letter.  My email address is : teddybear82472000@yahoo.com so if there is anyone who may remember me or was around about 1940/45 please contact me. Thank you Ted
