Schoolbooks of Margaret Hutchings, 1945-1947
Margaret Rosemary Hutchings (later Pearce) was born in Brighton in 1938 and lived at 39 Park Road in Coldean. She went to Falmer Church of England School from the age of 5 to 9.
Margaret has contributed some of the entries in her schoolbooks from this time to the Letter in the Attic project, together with a memoir she wrote in later life.
Here you can see an extract from a Victory Book she created in 1945.
