"I love you. I’ll wait for you. Come back. Come back to me."

Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

I never made that journey to Balham. So the scene in which I confess to them is invented, imagined. And, in fact, could never have happened… .because Robbie Turner died of septicemia at Bray Dunes on the first of June 1940, the last day of the evacuation…and I was never able to put things right with my sister Cecilia….because she was killed on the 15th of October, 1940 by the bomb that destroyed the gas and water mains above Balham tube station. So, my sister and Robbie were never able to have the time together they both so longed for… and deserved.

I’d like to think this isn’t weakness or evasion, but a final act of kindness. I gave them their happiness.
