I'm posting this on behalf of a friend, his request below.
Does anyone remember from the Spring of 1944 a group of repatriated POWs being welcomed home at a civic reception hosted by the Mayor at Bebington Town Hall? I believe these men were the first from that area to be brought home.
A boy and a girl from each of the schools in the area were chosen to attend. I was in my last year at Bromborough Pool Works School and was picked together with the late Cerries Mangan [nee Wilde as she was then].
I have been searching for several years, on and off, for reported News
of this event without success.
