#3211 Whaley Letter

Post by Norm »

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

Thank you for sharing this wonderful letter - so touching, so interesting. I can only imagine what they must've been going through until they knew their son was safe. The letter gives such a "feeling" for those times.

Thanks for sharing, Norm.

I remember Gerald Pearson, he lived on Jodrell Meadow and must have been roughly the same age as my parents. It's very interesting to read about his wartime exploits. I'd never have guessed he went through such an ordeal.

Yes, thanks from me also.

Thank you for continuing, especially after being let down by a "friend". Hope you are keeping well.

Baernard and Annie Pearson are seen here fundraising with a barrel organ which they had borrowed from "Little Italy". The Pearson family had at one time lived at No1 Yeardsley Lane, Furness Vale
