I love the lady's comment towards the end when she says " People are far more scared of things nowadays then we were then" ( or something close to that) how very true!!. I have had converations with parts of my family who survived the blitz etc. Fascinating stuff.

How fascinating to hear live reminiscences from someone who actually experienced the horrors of the war.
