My name is Johnnie Manckiy, I am writing a book about Calke Abbey during World War Two. I am trying to find anyone with memories of Calke Abbey during the 1930s and 40s or of its owner Hilda Mosley.
I am also trying to find the family of Arthur Gilbert, who worked for the Repton Rural District Council during the war. I need to ask his family about copyright permission to use information from a collection of letters he wrote as billeting officer for the council to the owner of Calke during the war. If you have any memories or information please write to me at: Johnnie Manckiy, 2036 Marit Street, Mansfield, Arkansas 72944 USA.
