I continue to be amazed at the large number of viewers of this page (80 over the last weekend), and am wondering if many of them are ex-service men who served here during WWII. It now occurs to me that, if my guess is correct, that the page could be used to exchange memories (possibly by the establishment of a Didlington mailing-list). I should welcome comments and ideas, so please use the link below:
