I remember the POW

I NOTICED the name Nicolini (Letters, November 7). I knew Nicolini well. He was a prisoner of war, working on the farm I was working at in Woodwalton. The war was over, but he then lived in Woodwalton village. We also met his wife. I lived at Great Ravele

I NOTICED the name Nicolini (Letters, November 7). I knew Nicolini well. He was a prisoner of war, working on the farm I was working at in Woodwalton.

The war was over, but he then lived in Woodwalton village. We also met his wife. I lived at Great Raveley and Pidley at the time and he became a driver of the van that picked up six women. Then Gwen Garner of Pidley became the driver.

I will be 80 next year and I am in a residential home. I was also a London evacuee. The day before the war I was 11 and I did not go back. I was evacuated to Godmanchester.

I have no idea where Nicolini is now. But somewhere in my mind is that either he or his wife died.

I have been reading The Hunts Post for years; especially when I was married at Christmas 1945, and have never missed it. Thank you for your memories.
