An American in Tewin

Hello to Hertfordshire, I am an American and my father lived in Tewin during WW2.

He was a radio operator and belonged to a small group of Americans who manned an Air/Sea Rescue triangular radio station in or near Tewin during the war. There were 9 of them, I believe. They all lived in private homes with Tewin families.

I was wondering if anyone remembers any stories about these Americans from that era. I remember him talking fondly about the Tewin people and how they made such an impact on the rest of his life. He even wrote a letter of thanks to the residents, which was published in the Hertfordshire Times in 1944, as he was about to depart for home.

His time in Tewin was one of the highlights of his life and he always held the English people in the highest regard.
