Can you Answer?
Your Family History
Forewoman Constance Hunter
Women's Land Army
from:MiddlesboroughDoes anyone know the address of the Thirsk Land Army hostel where our mother Constance Hunter stayed for a number of years. Our mother met our father in Thirsk when he was training at Catterick but was billeted there. Our mother died a year or so ago, closely followed by our father and we wish to make a kind of pilgrimage to Thirsk to see the places they knew so well. Dad used to drink in the Golden Fleece, which still exists, and we would love to know where Mum was based. One of my sisters went to York with our parents and they spent a day in Thirsk but Mum could not remember exactly how to get to the hostel and they had to give up after a few hours wandering the byways. Can anyone help, please?
