Mum was trained during the war and she tells us about having to be on the roof at night for doodle-bug watch. She remembers a room with an auriol window where a room had been divided and had an inter-access door with her friend Jean Claydon (who married a Green). This meant great fun confusing everyone by going in and out of each entrance.
Her other main recollection seems to revolve around the evidence left by priapic US airmen on Saffron Walden Common.
