Pam Preedy

A mother and grandmother, Pam Preedy was born in Bromley. She lived and was educated in West Wickham and Bromley. She trained as a teacher and taught for many years, and since retirement, she has been travelling with her husband on his lecture tours.

Originally interested in researching the men whose names appear on the Bromley War Memorial, reading the local paper opened a window for her into the world of Bromley 1914 – 1918 in World War 1. Her research takes up most of her time, now working on a PhD in local history, but she still has time for reading and knitting, and the gym.
