Kathleen Glancy's mum and dad at Rossie Ochil

1952

About this memory

Between 1957 and 1965 my mother suffered 3 heart attacks. My father was the first man in Scotland I believe to receive a pioneering pacemaker in approximately 1966. They moved from the village around 1969.
Memories are sweet,but times were tough then.
Mothers had to watch every penny but due to good housekeeping,we never went hungry.Remembering rationing did not end until 1951 when exchanging coupons for food and clothes ended. Now in 2015 I am still proud to have had an unique village upbringing in the heart of a city where children could play out safely and where a neighbour could rely on each other if needed.
