Lockyer, Rosetta T, 8, July - September 1943

From the Dover Memorial web site.


Rosetta Lockyer was evacuated to Wales from Dover on 2 June 1940, with her brother John and older sister Primrose

Born in 1935, she died, aged 8, in 1943. She had been dropped off by the local postman, who was helping with his van to bring evacuees from their school, a distance of some two miles.  While crossing the road she was struck by an army convoy lorry driven by an ATS. The ATS was severely injured, having gone through the windscreen of the lorry and fallen into the road.  Rosetta's brother remembers that just a few weeks before she had been singing of her home town - "There'll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover".She is buried in Mamhilad churchyard, near Pontypool

with thanks to John Lockyer
