everybody has a story to tell about their life

Harry Hills

Ian and Noreen Honey, 2013

Ian Honey: Mr Harry Hills decided to emigrate and he went working as a carpenter in Salt Lake City when the war broke out, the First World War, and he was a British employee in the USA and he hadn’t a license to stay any longer and he came back by train and across the Atlantic. He was given a job in the aircraft factory making aircraft propellers instead of going in the army. After the war he came back and continued working with his father in the workshop. I never knew his father; apparently he was a grumpy old chap.
