Ten-bob appeal

Stanhoe WI seeks family members to receive wartime letters.

Stanhoe & Barwick WI is asking Stanhoe residents to help locate the families of some former villagers. “We have unearthed from our archives several thank-you letters from Stanhoe WWII servicemen,” says WI Secretary Valerie Robson. “The WI gave them each 10 shillings (50p) for Christmas in 1943 and/or 1944.”

“Our aim is to find a relative of each serviceman and present the original letter. We have already handed over two letters: to the son of Cecil Oldfield (Gerald) and to the younger brother of Maurice Ayres (Michael).”
