  • seeing the American car in the photo in Cecil road reminded me of my time at Waters Place , we used to see a lot of American soldiers and Jeeps going past our cottage . We lived in the workers cottages over the river and railway , from Waters Place farm . There would be somewhere around twenty such vehicles at a time crossing the railway and then over the ford on their way to the main road between Ware and Wareside .Does anyone know where they were stationed ? They would pass by every week or so , and we would shout to them ` got any chewing gum chum ` and cup our hands to catch the chocolates and sweets that they would throw to us .
