Dear Hilary

There is no town in Lancashire Uk with the name St Anne’s.  There is the coastal resort of Lytham St Anne’s south of Blackpool to where I was evacuated at the beginning of WW2 from Manchester, Lancs.  I was one of 1500 boys who attended Manchester Grammar School who were evacuated during ‘the phoney war’.  We returned back to Manchester in December, 1939.  Manchester was heavily bombed one year later.
