'When you get there', our mum said, 'you find out your new address and you write it on the card. Then you post it at once. Now, the code. Our secret code ...You know how to write a kiss? Well, put one kiss if it's horrible and I'll come straight there and bring you back home. You put two kisses if it's all right. And three kisses if it's really nice. D'you see? Then I'll know' 13 June, 1940. Carefully labelled, and each clutching little brown suitcases, Terry, aged seven, and his elder brother Jack, eleven, stand amid the throng of children which crowds the narrow platform at Welling station awaiting the steam engine which will pull them and their fellow evacuees across the country towards their unknown destination - and their new lives...Warm-hearted and moving, "Kisses on a Postcard" is a vivid and intimate portrait of our wartime history; a compelling and uplifting memoir of growing up in an extraordinary time.
