Then there were the Warres. Mr. Warre who became the Mayor and during the war he opened a section of the basement in his house for people to do camouflage knotting. Mum and I used to go over there quite often and do this. We thought it was quite fun.

I don’t know whether it was through Mr. Warre or someone else, but mum and I did sew and knit quite a bit and we did the graft of the socks that were made by machine and we grafted the heels and the toes.
