In Reply to: WW2 Mail Censors & Censorettes by Jessie Hardy of 897

My mother, Ruth Elizabeth (Browne)Galyon worked as a censor at the Southampton Naval Depot during WWII. She would board the train at Shelley Bay to get to work. I recall her saying that she had to scratch out the word radar if it "popped" up in any of the letters that she reviewed. Before the war was over she emigrated to America to join her husband (my father) in the NY area. Her parents remained in Bermuda their entire lives.
