Memories of Yeovil at War

 

 

Post-Wars

 

 

Yeovilians remember...

"I was taking our dog for a walk one evening along West Hendford by Loder’s Car Sales (it was just a stone track and garden allotments then) when the bombs started falling, I ran for home on the corner of Beer Street, men were lying on the pavement against the wall and shouting "Get down you silly bugger!" - but I kept running, I was going home to Mum."
