D Day came and went and it was only a matter of time before it was all
over and Joyce Clark's husband would be returning home. "We knew
we were going to be the first females out there to do a Show but we
didn't know when of course. Then suddenly the D Day landings were on
and my husband was involved - and I think we were playing the Nottingham
Empire when I heard he was wounded;
helped me out at that time. I think he was brought back to Derby into
I didn't know whether he was going to have an arm off or leg off or
thank God he was alright as it was just shrapnel in his chest.
Ivy took me to the Hospital and brought me back;
she was so kind."
