  1. Fascinating. Well done for the research. It would be fun organising a summer countryside walk going over some of these sites with Dennis, if he’s still up for it, or a guide who knows his stuff


  2. Many thanks to you Dennis, for your article. You have painted a very interesting, moving – and at times, humorous – account. I have passed the details to my 3 children (now adults) who grew up in Horndean in the 70’s onwards. I just know they are going to enjoy reading the article too! Thank you again.

  3. Fascinating, we lived at Laundry Corner, Lovedean a while, before moving to Merchistoun Road.
    We used to have picnics in a bomb crater.
