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.

Church Walk, East Malling looking towards the church of St James the Great.
The picture shows the green on the left and the entrance to the tea room of the East Malling Stores on the right. The stream that ran through the garden of the Stores emerged under a boundary wall at the side of this road and a protective railing had been erected to prevent church goers falling in. This was a favourite place for Rosalie Turner as she would liked to sit on the rail,grasping it tightly and swing herself upside down and up the other side.

The Stores is now the Nasima Tandoori Indian Restaurant

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 friends developed a game where they would walk to Beckenham town centre via the road shelters en route to see how far they could get without being caught in the open when a doodlebug bug engine cut out.

Both girls had smart "leather" cases for their masks and luminous false flower buttonholes to wear in the blackout.
