'Evacuation to Fakenham'
by Mrs. Elizabeth Turner
Mrs Turner shares her childhood memories of family life in wartime Fakenham.
'A group of regular soldiers came to demonstrate a small field gun for the Fakenham Home Guard in a nearby hall. The Home Guard stood with their backs to the side walls, the gun was set up and a round fired. Some mistake must have been made, as the round hit the tortoise stove at the other end of the hall and carried it through the wall, over a low hedge and into a field, leaving a smoking hole!'
