David Gillespie, who has died aged 86 of cancer, lived and breathed old films. He worked as a projectionist in various London cinemas, including the Walpole, Ealing, where, when he was cleaning the projector with a duster, the cloth caught on moving parts and was pulled into the machinery, stripping the teeth from the gears. He also had a spell at the Gaumont Palace, Hammersmith, Shepperton Studios and Technicolor. His final post was as media resources officer with the Inner London Education Authority.

A cultured man with a strong interest in music and opera, David went into teaching but found it impossible to keep order. During the war he was stationed at a mobile library on the Faroe Islands, but after endless requests managed to become the projectionist in the local cinema showing films to the forces. On demobilisation he returned to the neighbour who had kept his collection of films in a coal bunker, only to find that they had been destroyed, either by German bombs or by vandalism, he never discovered which. He just started collecting again, and soon his house in Barnes, south-west London, was full – upstairs and down. Later, he gave regular screenings at his house, and film historians and enthusiasts from all over the world came to see his rare celluloid treasures. After a fire, some of his stock was transferred to the Cinema Museum, and is currently being processed by the National Film and Television Archive.

I first met David in the mid-1960s. He had a wonderful memory and was very entertaining about his life of collecting films. Recently, two friends started to record these stories on video, and when it became clear that he had only weeks to live, they assembled a cut of 75 minutes for him to see in the lounge of the Trinity Hospice, in Clapham, south-west London, with a group of friends. It may be screened at this year’s silent film festival in Pordenone, Italy, which he attended annually.  June 2008 notice in Guardian newspaper

Veronica Gillespie, 1914 – 1998, who has died aged 84, was a journalist who became an authority on the Kindertransport evacuation programme, which rescued thousands of Jewish children from Nazi Germany. In November 1938, the British government issued special permits to allow thousands of children and some families to escape from Germany. The Kindertransport children arrived, via the Hook of Holland and Harwich, at Dovercourt holiday camp – a series of little wooden chalets with no heating – which had been lent for the first arrivals. They went to bed fully clothed and hugging hot-water bottles against the cold.

Once it became clear that Dovercourt was unsuitable as a reception centre, the children were handed over to foster parents in the staff gymnasium at Liverpool Street Station. A rope was fixed across it children on one side, foster-parents on the other. The name of each was called out, and they met at the rope and walked off together, the next six years of their lives settled in this simple way.

Veronica’s work involved ‘aftercare’ helping to get exit permits and sponsors for children with relatives in the US to pay for their passage across the Atlantic. The number of children (9,732 to be precise) that were saved in this way from the Holocaust was only a drop in the ocean of the genocide that followed, but they at least survived.

Veronica Gillespie was born at the outbreak of the first world war of Anglo-German parentage at Wylam, on Tyneside. Her father, Julius Holzapfel, died in the flu epidemic that devasted Europe in 1919, a time when anti-German hostility was at its height there, eventually forcing her family to change its name. Thus she identified all her life with the orphaned and dispossessed. As a scholarship girl at Wycombe Abbey, the memory of her teachers weeping for lost fiances on Remembrance Sunday touched her profoundly.

At Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, she started her writing and editing career, winning a traveling scholarship around American Ivy League campuses. On the voyage out, sharing a passage on the SS Normandy with refugees from the Spanish civil war, she was on the point of running away to fight in Spain. It would have been a loss.

Instead she went to work for the Care of Refugee Children Movement, and the years of hosting the Jewish refugee children were what she remembered vividly and wrote about in later days.

When the second world war began, no more children left Germany. Veronica was bombed out of her flat, and decided to enlist right away. Laughed out of the recruiting office for the Wrens because of her German birth name, she crossed Whitehall in disgust to join the Land Army, where she stayed for a year before joining the ATS as a dispatch rider and searchlight operator.

She served in the bombing raids including the night of D-Day then left for Ireland as a commander in the ATS. A few weeks later, in Omagh, she married Leslie Gillespie, a young officer from Belfast whom she had met on a train and befriended over Louis McNeice’s poetry. He was immediately posted to India, but she managed to join him later, and to witness the massive changes under partition.

When they returned to London in 1948, Veronica found work with Metro Goldwyn Mayer while Leslie wrote and taught. It was Veronica’s responsibility at MGM to assess novels as possible film subjects. She then moved to magazines, working as an agony aunt on Women’s Realm, and later the TV Times.

The Gillespies’ family home in west London became a refuge for casualties of the 1960s: ‘Light filled the living room, made the hospitable table gleam. Bouquets of fine meals hovered like attentive hosts,’ one adoptee, George O’Brien, wrote about their Westbourne Terrace flat in his autobiography, Out Of Our Minds.

After retirement, Veronica moved to East Sussex. but when her youngest son, Charlie Gillespie, a political scientist at the University of Madison in Wisconsin, became ill with Aids, she and Leslie moved to America to nurse him. After Charlie died in 1993 they returned to Cambridge, where Veronica recounted her experiences of the Kindertransport in a chapter of Testimony Of The 20th Century (1996), and in articles for the Spectator and elsewhere.

A natural storyteller with a gift for clear, concise narration, she vividly relayed the major events of our times to her grandchildren, just as she had to her own children, three of whom, along with Leslie, survive her. Veronica Gillespie, journalist, born July 7 1914; died December 19, 1998 (Source: The Guardian, written by Elgy & Sonie Gillespie)
