Dramatic journeys in five people's lives with Desmond Wilcox
In wartime Lancashire Betty Allen , then 26, went to a GI dance and agreed at the end of it to keep a date with an American air force sergeant. They never kept that date because of a series of accidents, mistimings and his posting to train for one of World War 11's most daring bomber raids. They wrote letters to each other - many of them. But he was shot down over the Ploesti oil fields and reported killed in action. Betty married someone else and the pile of letters - which had become increasingly more loving - was tied in a ribbon. Then
Chuck Bridges surfaced, alive and recovering from wounds, in a prisoner-of-war camp - determined to return to
Britain and marry Betty.
She told him it was too late - the letters between them stopped. Forty years later they met again, Betty a widow, he happily married and living in New Mexico. It was an affectionate reunion in memory of the wartime romance that never happened.
