Bernard

Nostalgic visit for Bernard

A trip to a 1930’s greenhouse brought back war-time memories for former gardener Bernard Mallion, writes Lynda Foy. The 91-year-old, who lives in Hollington, St Leonards, started work at Alexandra Park in Hastings when he was 16 in February 1941, and stayed there until 1943 when he joined the Royal Navy.
