What specific quote makes Winston recall that "there had been a fairly long interval of peace during his childhood"?
"Even the names of countries, and their shapes on the map, had been different."
"…one of his early memories was of an air raid which appeared to take everyone by surprise."
"There were people sitting all over the stone-flagged floor, and other people, packed tightly together…"
"…there were no external records that you could refer to, even the outline of your own life lost its sharpness."
"Airstrip One, …in those days…had been called England or Britain."
