Bertha's Wartime Memories

Bertha's Wartime Memories

Over lunch one day, Charlotte Stevens of Urafirth asked Bertha Peterson of Sullom all about her wartime memories. The following stories are an interesting, frightening and sometimes amusing first-hand account of life in Northmavine during World War II.

Many thanks to Charlotte for the initial idea and for making the recording, Bertha for recounting her tales and Bertha's brother who added some more detail! Fiona typed up the transcript from the tape.
