Memories of Deal

By dandeakin

“Four families of Newings lived in Faber Villa during the war. Florence disliked it there as she said there was always feuding and a bad atmosphere in the house. One day the Air Raid sirens went off and three of Florence’s aunts took refuge in the family shelter out here in the street. It took a direct hit from a German Shell fired from across the channel killing all three of them. They’re all buried together up in the cemetery.“

This was one of several war time recollections - the most amazing thing for me was that there is no record or memorial to the three people blown up a few yards from where he is standing. Most people using that street today would probably have no idea what happened outside their houses 60 years ago...

Wonderful reminiscences and no one even remembers, what a shame.
