Susan Kelly. How did the war change your experiences as a child?

Patricia Dale. I can remember the soldiers being camped between us and the Zoo and the searchlight being there. I was in the house the night that the submarines came into the harbour and we all got under the table in the hall, we had an attic there and a hall and stairs, we had the big kitchen table there and we all got under that. We had gas masks and in sorts of pouches that we had to carry to school and there were trenches in the Mosman public school yard.
