If I send 1 of you attachment PM?compress

But have just discovered that 1 of these local camps "squatters rest  I'm dictating  it's called s #quatters the names of the places in Leicester but I know about so far are tilting t i l t o n on the Hill and near Stoughton airport where a r b o t o r i u m is now I believe there was one towards Market Harborough and the squatters place was still occupied in the late 1950s and it was prefab prefabricated buildings which my grandparents lived in prefabs in 1950s in the 1980s they'd become permanent buildings so I'm really interested in hearing more about this and a Jewish lady told me that the Jewish people were kept in separate camps would really shocks me ok shops yeah so if any of you want to make any more contributions also you can post it on Leicester community radio daytime Facebook on Saturdays post and if you want to phone in this Saturday you can leave a message thanks

I went to Highfield Street but I took a photo of number 18 which was boarded up instead of number 13 my favourite Turkish restaurants is on that street so I don't mind going back anyway so so he went went to Canada and he died in Canada and we now have to find if he had children and if I can have an excuse to go to Canada and take his box to his descendants also I must go to the antique shop and tell the man that yes time traveller's have solved the story of the box within the week wow so hopefully this will encourage my boss on the radio to do history mystery every every week like to do an interview from my workshop a phone interview with me in my workshop Saturday workshop I'm doing dolls from other countries so I'll post the post about that I have to learn how to put pictures thanks everybody you're great

White Pages shows only one listing with the right surname, but it is in Toronto.

Of course, children might well have moved away from the Vancouver area.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

I haven't had time to summarise print out story so far to give to antique salesman when I return box .

I know he would send it to descendants if he could we had a lot of pleasure fin ding out about this and I found another person to interview who s neighbour was a Polish lady proud of escaping the Russians who told him her story when he was a boy .

Not  sure if I can attach audio link
