Markethill WW2

My grandfather William Thompson was the station sergeant at Markethill RUC station during the WW2.

My Mum lived at the RUC station during the war, and remembers things like

  • American GIs at Gosford.
  • German PoWs at Gosford – and also at Markethill RUC station.
  • Sounding the air raid siren at Markethill.

She remembers that the GIs brought bananas, oranges and chocolate for the first time in many years.
