Can you help me trace John?
I AM trying to trace John Mccallum, who was living at St Monica’s Church of England Children’s Home, Windmill Lane, Ashbourne, in the mid to late 1940s and early 1950s. I believe he became a pilot.
My name was Norma Watson, and I was also at St Monica’s at this time with my brother
Harry. Harry went to Ashbourne Grammar School and I went to the secondary school at the top of Derby Road.
The home was wonderfully run by Mrs Irene Palmer and her husband.
Perhaps some of your elderly readers have some memories of St Monica’s during those years, or of any of the children who were brought up there.
I would be grateful for any information.
