Memory:Having read Jean Ellis' contribution relating to war-time Australian generosity, I thought that I would add a section from my History of St. George's school. This relates to the evacuees in Whitchurch and the pupils in Everton. The pupils in Whitchurch and Everton still had their Christmas treats and also received gifts from overseas. Those in Whitchurch received the benefit of entertainments arranged by the Rotary Club and from money raised by McAlpine's dance at Prees Heath aerodrome. The Whitchurch contingent received a gift of money from Canada which was used for the children to see the film of the Jungle Book in January 1941 and, a few days earlier, they had presents from the Junior Red Cross in the United States of America. Everton scholars also had some tit-bits; in January 1942, a number of boxes of chocolate was received from America and, at other times, oranges and Canadian apples were distributed. The presentation to the infants in Everton of "sweet cocoa in blue bags and dolls from America" is well remembered; the cocoa seems to have made a great impression on minds and taste buds alike.

Memory:Hi Friends Of L.T.E, I received a Christmas parcel from Australia last week it was from a customer who had called in to our charity shop in Wavertree some years ago to inquire about tracing a person in her family tree. Receiving this parcel took me back in time as to when I attended Heyworth Street Junior School Everton. Food parcels had arrived from Australia, they were divided up,one item to each pupil.I received a 2lb bag of brown sugar.We each had to write a thank you letter to the school in Australia. My Mother was very pleased with the gift as sugar was still on ration 1945/6.That memory was from seventy one years ago.So thank you once again Australia for remembering the children of Everton in 1945/6 PS.Is there anyone else remembers these food parcels arriving? Cheers Jean Ellis 10/1/2018

Memory:The Everton Gambler! Hi to all. As a child I lived at several address in the Everton area. 1950 I can't recall the name of the street I aged about six, I was taught a lesson on gambling. Here is my story, I and given an old penny to buy and orange (I should think this was a great privilege then) from the corner shop, this shop had a one- armed bandit, it was an older version of today's slot machines. On entering the shop instead of buying an orange, my penny went into the one-a red bandit, yippee I won! out came two pennies. Silly me! instead of buying an orange and having one go on the machine, my two pennies went into the machine, I lost both of them. I now had to go home without an orange or the penny, I told my Mum the orange was bad and I had put it down the grid, that was another silly mistake to have made saying this, instead of telling the truth. I was taken back to the shop by my Mum who wasn't very pleased at me having been sold a bad orange, once there, this is when my Mum learnt, I was not only a gambler, but a fibber too, I was absolutely devastated by this. I was marched back home and sent right to bed with just a drink of water until the next morning. Some people may say that was harsh, but from that experience I have grown up with the attitude of, if it's in my purse, I know I have it however small it is, gamble and it could be lost. Also learnt to own up to wrong doings, thank you Mum! It would be great to hear from any others who have had similar lessons learnt from their younger lives. Wishing you all a wonderful 2018.
