Two Woodford residents who attended Woodbridge High School during the 1940s have been brought together by the South Woodford Village Gazette.

Gordon Valentine read an article about Robert Putt’s local wartime memories – which was part of a series in the magazine – and contacted the editor, who was able to help put the nonagenarians in touch.

“It was lovely to hear they could share experiences, even the not so nice ones, like hiding in the school basement during air raids,” said a school spokesperson.
