When I Lived In Duchess (5 April 2012)

contributed by ExDuchessLady
(contact ExDuchessLady about this story)

Well, I just found this site - while I was looking on Google for stuff about 'Duchess'.

This is due to the fact, that I lived in Duchess for the first 10yrs of my life.

Between 1956/1966.

I thought I would place this on this site - if anyone else out there, would like to contact me - about my time in Duchess & swap stories.

Looking forward to any replies.

Thanks for reading my note.
