Lovely lady knew my par­ents

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

YOU kindly pub­lished my ap­peal to trace peo­ple who knew mem­bers of my fam­ily, the Cooks and the Laid­laws, when they lived in High Halden. The re­sponse was bet­ter than my wildest dreams. I have been back to High Halden and met a very lovely old lady who used to live in Lon­don and knew my par­ents when her fam­ily and mine moved to High Halden at the end of the war. This is my last link with the past, and my wife and my­self were made to feel most wel­come. I was also shown the book that had been writ­ten about High Halden’s his­tory and a pic­ture of my old house was in it, sadly now though it has been de­mol­ished. I would like to thank every­one who con­tacted me by let­ter, email or phone. I will re­ply to all of them as soon as I can. Brian Cook, Floren­tine Way, Water­looville, Hants.
