Alison Park, Gatehouse of Fleet, Scotland. We were about 8 rows from the railings of Buckingham Palace. I have not seen or heard any recordings of this whilst watching the old newsreel footage. I was a war baby, born in , living in New Zealand, and I believe the war, or the end of the war, provided me with one of my first real and powerful memories. It was VE Day, so I would have been two and a half.
It must have been in the morning. My mother took me out to the free-standing letterbox, lifted me to stand on it, and there we heard the bells, sirens and hooters, ringing up from the city, invisible over the ridges that led down to town about three miles away.
Then my mother took me back inside, into the front room, the best room, and we both knelt down by the couch and she prayed out loud, thanking God that the war was over. I remember the street party. Joy at the end of bombing and V1 and V2 attacks. We lived in Medway on the bombing run into London and in between dockyard at Chatham and airfield at Rochester, and looking at the crater pattern we reckon we might have been next.
But regret that Dad and uncle were still fighting in Burma in dreadful conditions. They were the Forgotten Army all right. Last in line for supplies and aircraft. We even got food parcels sent to us from Dad as Americans had much better rations and could spare some.
I was just 4 years old at the time but still shiver at the noise of a siren. Last of the line that can remember it first hand. Must remember to tell the grandkids. Our parents never spoke of it. We lived in a critical area as borne out by the German bombers obsession with bombing the docks and the main railway line carrying troops up and down the South coast. As young boys we were repeatedly warned not to go near the Southampton water itself which was regarded as a well sheltered but potential landing point for German troops, and towards this end a large part of the sea front in the village was mined.
One day when my grandfather and I were happily going about our task a single German fighter plane flew overhead heading in a direct line to our house, the target railway line being but a minimum distance up the road next door but one to my dear Aunt. Nobody would have believed what happened next, least of all my dear grandfather. The pilot took the plane around full cycle and tore down towards us firing all the way, and I recall to this day seeing his shape in the cockpit and the fire flashes emanating from his machine gun.
The firing having stopped we finally stirred to find along my entire body, on my left side and less than half an inch away, a line of holes still ejecting a mixture of dirt and smouldering smoke. He encouraged our little entourage to gather sticks and stones and anything available with which to confront the German soldiers, and from that day on the stone I selected for the purpose nestled, being right-handed, in my right trouser pocket.
I will never forget VE day when it finally came. At the age of six I had known nothing but war, constant bombing, black-out curtains, no street lights, hunger, powdered egg, and all that went with it.
Married ladies and mothers enquired as to whose sons had made it through, and whose had not, and there was amazing joy mixed with tears as folk looked around for just about anything that would burn to add to the huge celebration fire to be set off on common land. Retired Major Saunders let off his own home made fireworks which blew out several windows in the street.
I felt a strange mixture of joy, relief and excitement tinged with a kind of empty feeling born of not knowing what I should focus on next. For example I considered at length what I should do about the now redundant stone in my trouser pocket.
I knew I would feel somewhat naked without it but after due consideration I finally allowed it to slip through my fingers to the ground as the ultimate symbol that it was now finally over! But I did learn lessons from these events, young as I was at the time.
As my career unfolded, for example, I had already received a strong lesson in how to keep confidences and hold a secret.
I little knew at the time that I would face many more life threatening ventures, the survival of which just added to a kind of confidence that, perhaps, I was truly invincible; that the incident with the German plane was just a preparation for what was to come.
The shipping up the Southampton water nurtured my wanderlust and extensive future travels. We learned the priorities in life and how to see things in perspective. We had all learned the value of companionship sharing both misery and joy in those communal air raid shelters, and without, and I think it would be true to say that we learned how to make the best out of life.
But now was the time for those exhilarating joyous celebrations which we now entered with utmost enthusiasm and vigour. A time in our lives never to be forgotten. She was one of those with her sister laughing and dancing in Trafalgar Square. That moment stayed with her for the rest of her life. She died at the age of 94 in An extract from a letter my Grandmother wrote to a Polish airman she had met who was to become my Grandfather! A friend and I went to Trafalgar Square as we thought we would like to see the fun, it was simply amazing to see the crowds there, I have never seen anything like it before.
No one seemed to care where they were going or what they were doing. Even as a young boy then, I remember well going to a newsagents shop, buying a paper, with headlines 'Victory in Europe. Unconditional surrender by Germany'. At night, large bonfires and fireworks made for a very noisy night in Perth. I was 12 o VE day. The pianos were moved into the street and there was lots of singing and dancing.
I was happy the war had ended, no more bombs and doodle bugs. At the age of 18 in early Dad enrolled in the Territorial Army, because of his interest in electronics he joined the Royal Corps of Signals.
In late he was posted to S. Asia but because he was under 21, was removed from the contingent and became involved with the defence of Britain. He was posted to Norfolk where he subsequently met and married my Mother. He remained with TAC HQ through France then into Belgium, he was involved with the disastrous Operation Market Garden, sitting in a ditch for three nights trying to contact, by radio the surrounded paratroopers on the bridge of Arnhem. Following the Battle of the Bulge he set up special radio links to enable General Montgomery to secretly move back to Belgium to temporarily take over command of the allied forces.
They were escorted in and made to stand adjacent to a flagpole flying the Union Flag. General Montgomery came out to see them. He then showed them the Allied positions on the charts, they came out of the map caravan looking very shaken and sombre. There was no more talk of conditions. This is where my father really became involved with the surrender process.
The link was set up and the information was sent by Morse Code. The Morse key has remained in the family since then.
My Darling Wife, this is 2. I only wish I could write down on paper what I know but there is still such a thing as a censor and all I can say is that I am now doing what is probably the most important work in my life. In May Dad was invited to attend several commemorative events in the Netherlands and Germany. Later that day in the town of Luneburg he shared the stage with the sons of Admiral Friedeburg and Field Marshal Montgomery. Shortly after the surrender Dad was posted home due to ill health.
He was admitted into hospital where he had one of his kidneys removed. He had to leave the army even though he wanted to make a career of it especially as he was recommended for officer training. He eventually became the owner of the company and stayed there until he retired. He passed away in January Then I rushed home to tell my mother the news and she already knew. My father was a regular soldier and had been fighting with the 8th Army through N Africa and Italy.
He finally came home in the Autumn Proud of both my parents for the way they both coped for our country and our family. The best love letters are simple and pass along the fundamental message. I love you. When your heart is full of love and tenderness, then you should share it with your girlfriend.
