At the beginning of May 1941 my mother asked my father if we could go and live with family in North Wales, as she was terrified of the bombs. We left 47 Linacre Lane and went to live with family in Caernarvonshire; the "We" consisted of my grandfather, me, my parents, and one of my father's sisters.
A day or two later my father returned to Bootle, and he remembered as he turned from Stanley Road into Linacre Lane seeing our home, shop and dairy badly damaged - his words were "My home is gone". Just as well my father had agreed to take us all away, otherwise we may all have died that fateful night.
We stayed in Caernarvonshire for several years, my father got a job driving trucks for a the Ministry of Defence, Llanberis. We eventually came back to live in a prefab in Trinity Road - No.48. I can't remember how long we were there....... some time later we moved to 288 Knowsley Road, grandfather too.
Lived Linacre Lane, Trinity Road & Knowsley Road.
