Memories of the Second World War

Crow, Ruth (1984) Memories of the Second World War. unpublished. (Unpublished)


I was born in 1916 in Ballarat Victoria. I was married in 1937 and in 1940 my first daughter was born and in 1942 my second daughter. Thus I was in my early twenties at the beginning of the Second World War and both my daughters were born during the war. In these memories I am mainly dealing with the period after Japan entered the war (the end of the year 1941). We were living in Windsor (Vic) at this time, but shifted to Brunswick in September 1943.
