Queenie Pearman remembers WWI & WWII


During WWI the women in the village took in machining work for one of the factories on Brick Row where Mr White, who lived in the village worked. The factory made khaki and white overalls for the army and local women sewed the pieces together. Queenie's mother worked the button holes for removable, 'bachelor' buttons. Again this helped to bring a bit of extra money. In WW2 Queenie was postman for Sapperton. She also had two evacuees from London, one a distant relation. Both have since made contact with her after a long period without contact.
