Norma and Delphine

Posted by Katherine at 10:15 on 9 Mar 2017


Norma and Delphine are sisters who were brought up in a large family in Axminster town. Their father helped build the pill boxes which form the Taunton Stop line and he also worked at the aerodrome at Dunkeswell. Although living in a big family, rationing they recall, didn't seem to be too much of a problem as they had a regular supply of rabbits! The sisters remember hearing about an unexploded bomb in Sector Lane and seeing the German pilots shooting at the trains as they travelled along the train line over the fields.
