  2. I’m probably tardy re commenting on the truth of Memoirs, but when I wrote mine: ‘My Gentle War,’ I delved deep and recalled many events, people and memories I thought I’d forgotten. However, memories can sometimes play you false, so it’s good to check with family and long-term friends if they are able to assist. Interpreting the past is a different matter as our five senses are more powerful than we give them credit for. What joy it was to relive trips to ‘my’ Welsh wood/links with nature/the mountains and blackberry picking. Not to mention the bitter/sweet aroma of fruit simmering, apple and blackberry tart baking in a black-leaded oven and the taste of Welsh cakes laden with plump sultanas. I was one of the lucky evacuees and the care and love I received from my temporary foster-aunt is still palpable all these many years later.
