By Liz Stothard (re: Dee):
I was born in Winchester 1950 lived at the Hutments. And also I see from looking that my late Father is mentioned…he worked for Vickers and then ATC!
Until he was relocated to Hamble.
Have some pictures somewhere of me and my brother at the Hutments and also photos of Dad in the drawing office, in Hamble. Dad was Patrick Dee.
We lived at the Hutments for about four years. Hope to be able to speak to others that were part of that era.
Just reading some of Dad’s letters.
It seems we were at The Hutments, and living two doors away was a man named Harry, but with no surname. So if we can find out who he was, perhaps I can find out the number I lived at?
Harry worked at IBM in 1987? According to his letters.
My brother Christopher Dee went to Hursley infants school in the village.
The dates in his letters are from living at the Hutments from 1946 to 1958.
Hope we can find someone who knew Harry?
