David Best 1923 – 2002

Memories of Wartime Marldon

David was born and lived all his life in the Westerland area of Marldon, next to the land and buildings which were to become “the camp” mentioned so frequently in these memoirs. He attended the old Village School (opposite the Church) before going to Torquay Grammar School.

David committed his wartime memories to paper in 1982/83 and they were published in the Parish Magazine at that time.

We are very grateful to Mrs June Best for giving us permission to produce the installments on our Website. The memoirs have also been produced as a booklet.

 These memoirs are the copyright of June Best and may not be copied or reproduced without her permission.

 Further contributions by Valerie Dissington (nee Jones), Edenbridge, Kent (Evacuation 1) and Jane Cundy (Evacuation 2) of their memories of evacuation to Marldon are now included
