Comber, Vera

Vera Comber grew up in London; when she was 12 she was evacuated with her school from London to the countryside. When she returned, she endured the Blitz and remembers spending nights in the Underground. While living in London, her sister enrolled in the land army, and soonafter Vera did as well. She was sent to a dairy farm out in the countryside, where as a teenaged girl she made her own contribution to the war effort. Vera came to us courtesy of the RCL, and she spoke to Crestwood students Savannah Yutman and Emma Jane Stewart in early 2011.
