    When householders were urged to grow their own food and keep small livestock William Edward Turnerbecame an enthusiastic smallholder with ducks,chickens and rabbits replacing the fancy pigeons and budgerigars he kept before the war. Unfortunately his wife Edith and his daughters treated them all as pets so that they were never knowingly eaten.

    The Morrison Shelter-1941 cartoon
    The Turner family had an indoor Morrison Shelter in their dining room. It replaced the dining table and was used for Pat & Rosalie to sleep in during nights when the outdoor shelter was not used. They hated sleeping in the same bed and had their bed "territories" divided by a long bolster!
    The Morrison Shelters saved many lives and was named after Herbert Morrison.

    These were to be seen everywhere the Turner family went in Beckenham and people carried their gas masks with them wherever they went.Rosalie was just old enough to escape the awful contraptions issued for babies under two but was given instead a peculiar affair with flippers at the nose. Both girls had smart "leather" cases for their masks and luminous false flower buttonholes to wear in the blackout.

    Pat Turner was evacuated to Bluntisham about May 1942 at the end of the blitz and stayed with the Rev Kirby and his family at the Manse.She returned home about a year later and went back,with Rosalie, just after the V2 rocket attacks
    re-commenced. At the time of the second evacuation they stayed with their grandmother who had been in the village throughout the war.While they were in Bluntisham in 1945 their parents sold the Beckenham house and moved to East Malling.

    The first V2 rocket fell on 8th September 1944 and the attacks went on until the 18th September when Londoners believed that they had stopped for good. Unfortunately that was not the case and on 3rd October attacks recommenced. The final V2 rocket was in March 1945 when Londoners were preparing themselves for the onslslaught of the expected V3s.

    Flying Bombs on Beckenham
    Flying Bombs on Beckenham
    Pat and Rosalie Turner were too young to appreciate the danger posed by flying bombs and on an occasion when Pat was on a bus to visit the Odeon cinema in Beckenham she was astounded to see her mother cycling wildly behind the bus after her. This was because a flying bomb was overhead and the engine had just cut out.

    Subsequently Pat and her…

    The WW2 Air Raid Warning
    The WW2 Air Raid Warning
    This was the signal to take cover in the Air raid shelter William Edward had built at the bottom of the garden. He was pouring concrete for the roof on the morning war was declared. Immediately after the broadcast the first air raid warning was sounded. Luckily it was a false alarm because a hit on the shelter at that time would have entombed the family in wet concrete.
    Bombed Out
    Bombed Out
    The Turners lived in Beckenham during the second world war and their road was quite severely damaged. The only direct hit on the house was an incendiary bomb which Eddie was able to deal with by stirrup pump. However their terrace of five houses took three hits overall with a high explosive in the entry way to the recreation ground next to 110 and a another high explosive which failed to go off next door at 114. This is a lady describing her experience of being bombed .

    Alvar Liddell reads the midnight BBC news
    The adults of the family invariably listened to the BBC midnight news. The BBC news was always followed by "The National Anthem" and as the house was terraced and the "wireless" was against a neighbours wall there was an occasion when the neighbours arrived at the door to celebrate. Having heard the National Anthem through the wall they thought that the war was over.

    There was a station for the wartime Auxillery Fire Service (AFS) just up the road from the house in Beckenham.
    Reporting the blitz
    Reporting the blitz
    Luckily Beckenham was a few miles away from the scene described but Pat Turner remembers watching the terrible fires as they lit up the whole skyline.
    The family watched from the window from where they had watched the Crystal Palace fire some years before.Then they realised that they had better go down to the shelter.
