# BETTER WAR NEWS BUT MORE INVASION WARNINGS

Caley’s of Norwich was a long-established quality chocolate manufacturer, less well known than Cadbury’s.

‘Can’ was probably an abbreviation or nickname for Mr Capron, a pig breeder, who lived at ‘The Rest’ in Anderby Road, near the edge of ‘The Marsh’. Mr Capron, a lay preacher, also cultivated and sold blackcurrants and other soft fruit. (Less likely, it could possibly have referred to Scottish Mr Kochan, from Harrington, a relief veterinarian for Captain Shaw who was the regular vet from Alford.)

“Binbrook” was probably the name of a house, usually visible from Lenton Lodge. (Binbrook village and airfield were too distant.)

Mrs Brown, here, was probably Rose, wife of Eardley (see 31 Jan. 1941).
