In the recent warm weather the smell was overpower-

won £10, Molly De Carvalho came 2nd and won
£15 and the winner was Isobel Drage who received 1305 January 2012 to December 2013
£20! Along with their cash prizes they received a
signed certificate from the Lord of the Manor.

The competition was run by The Hatfield Heath
Regis Local Historical Society. We had to use
events that actually happened. To get this informa-
tion we used the History of Hatfield Heath book.
There, we found out very interesting facts about
what happened to this calm, tranquil society, in-
cluding the arrival of evacuees and the establish-
ment of the POW camp.

1311 January to December 2013 The Story of Ivy Lily Renfield

I shovelled some porridge into my mouth and started eat-
ing very, VERY hurriedly. This was it. Today was the
day I, and Lil` Liz, were to be evacuated. Mum had left it
late, not wanting to leave us. WE didn`t want to leave.
Yet, after a while, Mum realised the dangers of staying in
Clapton. Our next door neighbours, Margaret, Bill and
little Betty, were killed by a bomb that landed right on
their shelter. Mum was devastated; Margaret had been her
closest friend. Liz was upset, as Betty had been one of her
best friends, yet she is too young to experience the pain
and suffering Mum has gone through. I know I shouldn`t
say this but I`m glad. Ol` Bill was a right baboon. Bill the
baboon, to me. Yet Margaret was nice and Betty was so
small and sweet, I am going to miss them. But not Bill.
Never that baboon.

ly De Carvalho.

After referring to the great kindness of Mrs. Horace

Broke in welcoming him and Mrs. Du Cane to

Gladwyns lor a few weeks after their arrival while

the drainage at the Vicarage was being reorgan-

ised, he continues : " The War had then been in

progress about a year and most of the younger men

had already gone. If I am not mistaken I think 79

joined up straight away before conscription came in.

A cyclist company of the London Regiment was

billeted in the village under Captain Cole at Trinity

Hall. They gave a very good concert and farewell

entertainment to the village in Trinity Hall before

they left for service in France in, I think, March,

1916. A young R.F.C. officer named Prothero on

his first flight from Farnbrough got out of his

course and crashed in a ditch near the farm where

Mr. and Mrs. Gus Reynolds lived. He was himself

unhurt and we entertained him at the Vicarage. He

had been in some Scots Regiment through the.

retreat from Mons and I remember his speaking of it

as' the greatest sport '—-such is the reaction of

youth to adventure! The break-down lorry arrived

next morning. It had been held up at Harlow all night

by the local Police because it had not got a rear

light. In case of invasion arrangements were made

to evacuate the civil population into Hertford-

shire, and Mr. Stuart, the Schoolmaster, and I were to

be in charge of the old people and the children. To

leave the main roads clear we were to go by a devi-

ous route by the Down Hall road to the lane past

Sheering church and so through Sheering Back

Lane and through Sawbridgeworth .... At night Escape
Special Constables had to patrol the roads and Mr.
Stuart and I used to go together. Among things start-
ed during the War was the sale of Savings Certifi-

cates. Mr. W. M. Rooke was the Treasurer and Love Length Love Volume Love Lift

I acted as Secretary and collector When Mr. NEW L.V.L. LASHES AT ESCAPE
Rooke left the Heath, Mr. A. Robertson succeeded

him and my sister Miss Du Cane took on 'my work."

[Allotments behind the School were started for

growing potatoes. There was a danger too of a

coal shortage and the Vicarage coachhouse was

made a depot. " We sold altogether about 33

tons of coal. Mr. F. Bruty and Mr. B. Hockley Before After
managed the sale and distribution." Anti-aircraft
guns were posted in the neighbourhood]. * The THE REVOLUTIONARY ALTERNATIVE TO LASH EXTENSIONS

All will remember the beautiful order in which he kept the Churchyard .... The Parochial Church
Councils measure was passed in 1921 ... A most ex-

duties with keenness and enthusiasm and was the
greatest possible help to me. Miss C. Coleman was
elected Secretary and has now done long service
in the office. . . . It also organised a very suc-
cessful bazaar for the repair and restoration of
the church. The bazaar was opened by Mr. W. Foot
Mitchell, then M.P. for the division, and although it
was a wet day realised as far as I remember £120 or

Church and Chapel than in former days. I hope I
may have "had some small part in helping towards
it. The time of re-union is not yet, though Tarn sure
it is nearer than it was. Meanwhile let us all re-
