| When I was a boy, there were Yanks stationed on the High Road by what we called Charlton's farm. We used to watch them line up drums full of oil along the road and then set fire to them. The smoke was quite bad. Every Sunday morning we would line up outside the barracks, where they would hand out chewing gum, money, and candies.|
