CARE Then and Now: “I still have the labels”
Mrs June Darby, now living in London, told us:
My parents and I received at least three parcels and I still have the labels and correspondence. We were living in Bermondsey, South East London, and the labels list the contents and are dated 1949, 1950 and 1951.
There is a letter from Mr & Mrs Waller [from Seattle, Washington, USA, who paid for the packages] to my family in 1947... Sadly my parents are no longer with us. I am aged 74 today!
