AN EVACUEES POEM
Do you remember a red roofed school
A handful of shell for your sums?
They gave you a Mickey Mouse gas mask
And a pack of American gum.
Do you recall when your dad was on leave,
Dancing around like Astair?
They dressed you up like Shirley Temple
With a big ribbon bow in your hair.
At night sleeping under the table
While bombers droned over your heads,
And granny said "Won't it be lovely,
when we can sleep safe in our beds",
One day they said " The War's over!"
Granny sang of the Alley and 'Sal'.
When Vera sang 'White Cliffs of Dover'
And the bells rang 'for me and my gal'.

These are difficult to store, they should be made and eaten within the same period as fresh fruit.
Use small fruit such as slices of oranges (if you can get any) and bunches or as individual pieces.
First wash the fruit, Stir an egg white (you have to save your 1 egg from your weekly ration) but don't beat it then brush the fruit all over with the egg white, and cover with caster sugar and allow to dry.
Then arrange on a dish and enjoy!.
BEHIND THE LINES.
Spitfires and Blenheims.
Said the bells of St Clements
Aren't built for five farthings
Said the bells of St Martins
Donations I pray ye
Said the bells of old bailey
On account o the blitz
Said the bells of Shoreditch
Downhearted? Not we
Said the bells of Stepney
Lord love yer no, no,
Boomed the big bell of bow.
With apologies to all who know that
great old song "Oranges & Lemons"
