LesMac. As I thought, a friendship arrangement, same as mine for evacuation. You're right about the weather, boats were locked in for six weeks. Pity you did not know the area, there was a footpath that crossed the field from Grange Road bridge to Tusses Bridge, and another that branched off to the Miners Arms. The ground has changed, it was a sludgy bog half the time. Thanks for the picture, haven't seen that area for 75 years. Regards, Kaga.

My elder brother was in the Kindergarten around 1937 and the next year evacuated with the rest of the school to Bridgwater. The conditions were not favourable, on my brother's sixth birthday my dad visited and found all the pupils had impetigo from bathing in the same water. He quickly removed him and brought him home. He then informed all the parents he knew of the situation. Was probably the shortest evacuation period of the last war with Germany!
