Whilst searching for something else I came across these 2 items which caught my attention in the Suffolk free press 1942-43; August 27th 1943 Two Sudbury girls, Irene Willets and Ethel Sutcliffe, factory hands, were charged with unlawfully fraternising with Italian P.O.W.’s.. C.S.M. Hogg of the 10th Suffolk Home Guard said while passing along Melford road near the Stone Cottages he saw two Italian prisoners talking to girls, he went for Supt Hurst who accompanied him back, the Supt said the prisoners work for a Rodbridge farmer and lived in one of the Stone cottages, the Clerk asked if they were allowed on the public highway, Supt Hurst said “oh yes but they are not allowed to go more than one mile away”, he said the prisoners were provided with bicycles to allow them to attend the Roman Catholic church in Sudbury. Dismissed. AND, (I like the description of disgusting Swank!!) October 1st 1842 Disgusting swank was the Coroner’s comment on an airman’s flying at an inquest at Chedburgh Hall near Bury St Edmunds concerning the terrible death of Ronald King aged 29 a Yorkshire man who was employed at Chedburgh who was killed by a low flying aircraft’s propeller. Fred Buckingham said he saw the twin engined plane fly over at the height of 40 ft , he shouted at some workers to lie down, next thing he saw was the victim fall down, it was ascertained that Sgt Evans was the pilot of a trainer aircraft which had landed at Swans Hall at Hawkedon. Misadventure.
