GI Joe was taken at Bewdley Station during the Severn Valley Railway 1940's weekend - I remember the white tapes on the windows of our house in Manor Park, East London to stop the glass coming in if a bomb dropped nearby. When my Dad was a Naval Picket in London I was taken there near the end of the war to see him - an American Officer came out - I ran up to him and asked:"Got any GUM, Chum?" - well my Dad was annoyed said "You mustn't talk to Officers like that Son " but the GI bent down and gave me some Wrigleys - " Sure, Sonny, here you are then" - well, I was very pleased as Gum was a prized possession ! - I must have been about 7 or 8 years old then ...... memories.....
