March 23, 2005

I was born (May 17, 1942) in the Holy Ghost Convent which was an extension of Santo Tomas Camp. Both my sisters and my mother were in the convent and my father was in the main Santo Tomas Camp where we later joined him after the convent was closed.

I would be interested in being on your mailing list.

I would also like to know if there are to be any re-unions. I understand there was one to celebrate the Liberation of the Camp and I did not know about it.

I would also like to know if anyone remembers my parents, Madge and Alec Atkinson. There were New Zealanders and were probably classified as British.

I used to share a pram with Bayless Cobb and was looked after by a young woman called Tessa. I wonder where they are now and if anyone knows anything about them.

Thank you

Ngaire Garland (Atkinson)
