Description

Muriel was brought up and went to school in Wolverhampton. From the age of six she had wanted to be a teacher. After high school and training college she became a teacher at Low Hill School, mainly teaching English and religious education. She spoke about rationing and the blackout and remembered a bombing when her friend was killed. Muriel married Bill, a Royal Air Force aircrew, who was the pilot of a B-24.
