Catherine Nutt

Recollections of childhood memories of wartime Medway.

Born in 1937, Catherine was nearly two years old at the outbreak of war. She lived with her family in Kent. During the war Catherine recalls seeing prisoners of war whilst she attended church. They were accompanied by guards as they marched along. Catherine used to talk to the German and Italian prisoners, and recalls that her older sister told her that none of them were internees, which as a child she found strange – it seemed unusual that there were German people who had integrated into society. Despite this it was a natural and everyday occurrence that she would chat to them.
