I was a child evacuee in Britain during WW2. I became a nurse just before the NHS, was a committed Communist and now a proud grandparent.... AMA!
I have used a throwaway as I've posted personal things on my own account, so people won't be able to find me. I am this woman's grandchild and am typing for her. Today I was chatting about stuff and she reminded me how we once did a 'question thing on the Internet' and wanted to do it again.
'I was born in 1929, in London. I was evacuated in 1940 to near the Welsh border. I became a nurse and saw the beginning of the NHS. I was a committed Communist and knew several very significant members, with my family through marriage also holding important places within the Communist party in the UK and China.'
Edit: we are going to bed. It'd almost midnight now! Will answer questions tomorrow.
