  1. Does any one out there remember a Jean Lysaught (may be spelt wrong)
    She was a good friend of my mother during the war.
    I believe she was a sub editor on the magazine, and would include a copy in parcels sent to the family, along with tinned food, Chocolate etc which we hadn’t seen in years and were very grateful.

    I was just wondering if she might be in the picture..
