BARNES: My cousin, maiden name Winifred Barnes, used to live in a house whose back windows overlooked Portsmouth Football Club ground.

The wartime bombing of Portsmouth caused her and her mum to be evacuated to Warrington, where we spent lots of happy times together. When they went home after the war, I lost touch but still recall those happy days. If anyone knows whether Winifred is still with us and if so how I can get in touch with her or her descendants please contact me at the address below.
