Comments about this page

Hello Douglas, I really enjoyed reading your story. It tells exactly the thoughts, feelings and memories of a three year old - half understanding what was happening, but knowing instinctively you were safe with the family. I'm so glad your parents filled in the details for you. I feel so strongly that these personal accounts of the flood of 1953 should not be lost to future generations, that I'm putting together a collection of them for a new book. I would very much like to include your story - only with your consent of course! I can be contacted on 01621 856569 or via this website. Pat
