British Mothers Visit U.S. Kin
NEW YORK, April 14 (UP) - A group of 39 British women fanned out over the United States and Canada today to visit their war-bride daughters.
Many of the women, who arrived aboard the Queen Mary, were seeing their daughters for the first time in nine years.
Mrs. Bertha Corker of Southsea, Portsmouth, said the women from her community had been saving pin-money for years to pay for their trips.
