When were teenagers they became best friends. They met while working at the factory in the English city of Kent. Girls often rode bicycles and spend holidays together.
However, during the Second World War, Peggy and Beryl lost contact with each other.
Peggy married Ted Rouse in 1941, they had three children, but unfortunately their first-born died. Beryl married Harold Goodburn, they had two children.
Decades later, these elderly women got in the same nursing home in Gravesend.
“When I entered the room and recognised her, I just could not believe what happened. It was a miracle!” – Peggy admits in her interview.
Despite the fact that women had not seen each other for 80 years, they instantly recognised each other!
Today Peggy and Beryl don’t have time to be bored. They remember the time spent together in their youth. The ladies also tell each other stories from their lives, that they have accumulated in these 80 years.
