  1. I and my cousin were schoolchildren on the first anniversary of the end of WW2 but neither of us had heard of it until I read about it in a book, nor did we receive one. We are deeply interested to know why and if this omission can be redressed.


  2. A nice little piece of history for the children to have. I was at school when the war broke out but by the time these certificates were issued I was left school.
