Visit to Carew Cheriton Control Tower - November 10th

Last month, John and Deric Brock came to talk to us about their work at the Carew Cheriton Control Tower and we were invited to pay them a visit.  This proved popular as, last Saturday, twenty five of us turned up to be given a warm welcome by John and fellow volunteers.  First, we were given a talk by John Harries which sparked off many memories by those present and then we were shown some of the many displays and exhibits on show.

After coffee and cake, we were shown around the site and given an entertaining talk by John Brock which involved dressing up in wartime uniforms.  In the photograph: Bill Thomas (Home Guard), Liz Jenkins (Civil Defence), Don Hood (Airman) and Nikki Hancock (Women’s Land Army) with John Harries, John Brock and Les Dixon.  The visit was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we finished with a sing song in the air raid shelter concluding with “We’ll meet again” – I’m sure we will!
