How excited we were

Elizabeth Coughlin and family
Although I was young during the war I have vivid memories of the bombing. We lived in Poplar in the East End of London. The parcel came and I remember how excited we were.

During the war we only lived on rations. I remember the parcel contained tea, sugar, and rice, also tins of food – and sellotape, which we had never seen before.

Elizabeth Coughlin now lives in Worcester
