We could choose any bed we wanted and had to make it up. When I lay in the bed - I got a big THRILL - because I knew that the last one to sleep in that bed was a Girl!! Wow!!
In the morning - we looked at the beach and it was completely covered with Barbed Wire and obstacles to prevent Tanks etc. from landing. So we could not go and play on the beach.
So they drove us back to The Hill.
But, the punch line is that, when the real War started, the girls could not return to Mr. Gilbert's school- so he came to work as a Teacher at KHS. He was a very pleasant man. I hope he got his school back after the War.
Hans Leistina was at school 1939 to 1945
