“All the children from Deal were evacuated to Mid Wales, I went to Aberfan. We got on the train not knowing where we were going and got off in a place where they spoke a different language. The locals resented and didn’t like us much. I changed billets four times whilst I was there. I was only thirteen years old and the local children by that age had finished school and been sent down the mines. I was a strapping thirteen year old back then and the locals couldn’t understand why I should still be in school, whilst their children were down the pits.”

Our childhood experiences mark us for life. This does capture the weight of memory for me - the eyes looking leftward in the frame again, the railway line disappearing into the distance.
