Memories of Barrry

Chamberlain on the radio, 1939, At War with Germany, Air-raids, collecting shrapnel to swap. Rationing. G.I.s giving the Kids gum & chocolate. Italian P.O.W.s freely wandering the streets. VE-Day, VJ-Day, Serving Apprenticeship at Graving Docks, then MN. My Parents at the front door, as the cab left, to join my last ship, then coming to Canada.
