About the Event
Part of Harrogate Cenotaph's Centenary Commemoration Event.
MY LIFE AT ST DUNSTAN’S - Terry-Mike Williams. In 1944 my mother, whose sight was already weakened by radar work in the ATS, was blinded by a V1 rocket while on leave in London. Later she was transferred to St Dunstan’s, the home for the service blinded. And it was at St. Dunstan’s (now Blind Veterans UK) that I spent much of my childhood - an extraordinary experience that has affected all my life. This is both her story and mine.
