Worksheet for teachers. This resource explores one person’s childhood experience during World War 2. Ronald Leedham was born in 1929 and from the age of eight spent the war in what was described as a ‘Home for Crippled Children’ in West Wickham. Aged eleven, he was transferred to another home in Kent. His vivid memories will give children great insight and understanding into the impact of wartime on children separated from their families.
