Whaley Letter

Good afternoon

Thought you might be interested in the letter I have attached, which tells a fascinating tale.

It was sent to my grandparents and I came across it when sorting through my mother’s effects.

Best wishes

Rick Scott

Whaley Bridge PreWar Building Co

Hi I have had an email from Alan Middleton, which follows. I asked him to join the forum and post but he said he had tried to join unsuccessfully so could I put his email on here complete with his address, which I have done.

Re: Wartime Whaley

My parents lived near A.V.Roe which was frequently targeted by the raiders and there was anti-aircraft guns on the fields nearby. My mum used to pick up the shrapnel after a raid. Without wanting to change the topic, so if the posts become many I will move/delete them. Digger, was that at the Chadd...

Re: Wartime Whaley

This thread was created by copying some posts, mainly by megaroc, which were posted into another thread.

Re: Wartime Whaley

Thank you megaroc, it is nice to hear from someone who likes the photos we have on here.

We will keep them coming but as you know finding new ones is becoming harder since they themselves are becoming rarer.

Keep looking everyone.

Re: Happy New Year (or is it ?)

Happy New Year to all, well not actually Happy but not the end. The main point is the websites and forum will continue. A very small meeting was held last night, more like a chat, with a total of three people who post on here and it would be wrong to abandon it because of one person. It is very regr...

Re: Rev Samuel Evans of Taxal Church

Hi David, I am afraid you will not get an answer from R. S-S. Have a look at the New Find thread, he was not impressed with the time I was taking to upload his documents, he in effect then called me untrustworthy and then said I over reacted. He then left since I over reacted. I will have a few word...
