I heard a radio programme this week recalling the experiences of over 70,000 women who sailed across the Atlantic in the 1940s to begin a new life with the American and Canadian husbands they had met and married during the war. Today there are over a million descendants in America and Canada of the women who followed their hearts and took a leap of faith all those years ago. Funny to think I could have been one of those decendants - but I wouldn't have been me!
Jim did survive the war and returned home to Staten Island, New York. And he did marry and have a family, so if any one 'over the pond' recognises his face I'd love to hear from you - and so would Mum!
