On Saturday July 30 2022, Julie Harrison from Great Britain left the following message for McLaren Alistair:
"My husband whilst in the RN stationed at Yeovilton, lived with 2 colleagues at the Old Rectory towards the end of the 1960s. We met when he was statoned at Lee-on-Solent before being sent to Yeovilton. We married and I moved to Yeovil where we purchased a small bungalow. We lived in Yeovil for over 40 years moving within the town several times. My daughter was born there. She now lives in Cambridge after a teaching career abroad and we moved to be nearer to her. Unfortunately after over 50 years of marriage my husband passed away 4 years ago. I was looking online to try and find the old Rectory at West Camel. The photo online is a front view whereas I remember going through probably what was a back gate and did meet the Rector. I remember he kept bees. So looking for photos of the old Rectory of course I saw the one that I am pretty certain is the one my husband and colleagues rented but although joined to the main part was a back area. Can you tell me if I have got the right Rectory please? Yours sincerely, Mrs. Julie Harrison."
Julie Harrison left an e-mail address and a telephone number.
