Jean Quigg (née) Webster Sydney Australia

June 7, 2015 3 comments

Hi, I am Jean Quigg (née) Webster I now live in Sydney Australia and have been here for 37 yrs, but I still have so many vivid childhood memories of Ushaw Moor I could write a book.

I was born in 1933 at 48 Temperance Tce to Bill & Ada Webster the youngest of 5, my mother was a salvationist so the Salvation Army played a big part in our family life, my mother would don her uniform and go to the Top & Bottom pups every Saturday night to sell the War Cry paper and was always encouraged to sing the old rugged cross in both pubs.

My childhood friend was Phillis Mountain who lived in Walton buildings and I would love to make contact with her or her family. Most of my memories are of the war years and how it effected out lives at school and at home.
