Eric Longmuir


Eric Longmuir records his recollections as a pupil at Cheltenham State School in the 40s. He recalls the plane trees in Station Road, the five grocery shops, joining Miss Squires class in the pavilion at the back of the main buildings of the school at a time when the war was commencing to have a huge impact. The slit trench, the canvas bags with clothes should they have to be evacuated to the country and rationing of food.
