Below is an extrcat from an email from Rex Shelbourn We were living at Brook Cottage when the war started, (Sept 3rd 1939). We left Wyville on April 6th or maybe the 5th 1939 I think, and moved to the 'Walton, Farm house, it was only for a few months but Frodinghams insisted on having the phone connected so that they could get hold of dad at any time of the day or night as with war looming the quarry was working 24hrs. We were only there through spring and early summer before we moved to Gunby. Waltons farm was only a decent walk from Great Ponton and the 'Harvard training planes' that the American's sent over to train the English pilots on were operating from Gonerby air base all day and most nights ( making a hell of a noise). That's about all that I can remember about that period ,except that we used to return to Wyville at least one night a week to 'poach' the pheasants as the old butcher relied on them for his 'posh' customers.
