From the Gloucester Journal 27 June 1916

No Place Like Home

In answer to a letter written at Blakeney Council School, and which was enclosed with a consignment of vegetables to the Fleet, Winnie VIRGO has received an interesting reply from J.G GOULDING, a seaman torpedo man on board a battleship. The writer in acknowledging the receipt of the vegetables, says:

"They were very acceptable indeed, coming as they did directly after our big battle in the North Sea. I am pleased to say that this ship did her little bit in the action. I beleive myself that we sank two German warships and one submarine, and brought down one Zeppelin, so I don't consider that we did very badly. No doubt you will be suprised to hear that I am a native of of Blakeney, and the school you go to now was my old school. Mr. Evan JONES was my schoolmaster. I can just picture Blakeney as it is now, and I say, although I have been almost all over the world, that Blakeney is one of the prettiest places I have ever seen"

In conclusion the writer thanks the master, teachers and scholars of Blakeney Council School for their efforts on behalf of the sailors of the Grand Fleet

I would appreciate readers' knowledge of any connection between Winnie Virgo mentioned here and George Virgo who married Hilda Sterrey (my grandmother's sister.) They eventually lived at 3 Fairfield Drive, Lydney. George is said by various sources to have come from Blakeney, Brockhollands and Woolaston!

No worries. I'll get searching again when I've stuffed the turkey and eaten roast turkey, cold turkey, turkey escalopes, turkey curry, turkey pie, turkey casserole, turkey rissoles, turkey risotto, turkey jambalaya, turkey hash, turkey soup...

I wonder what my true love will give to me on the twelfth day of Christmas this year. Ah yes, a huge bill from the butcher.

Peter,

The multi-initialled Virgo family from Blakeney Hill/Furnace Bottom/Gibralter are part of my lot. I have a good deal on them on a GED on a computer that is not currently functioning, BUT, I suspect I have some hard copies of at least some of the info in my research box. I'll mount an archeological dig over the weekend and see which Virgo's come to light.

Turkey ala King is also quite nice. . .

Cheers. I'll look forward to what you unearth.

And I forgot turkey stroganoff.
