And later that year …..
“The School, since the outbreak of war, has had difficulty in coping with an influx of boys. The number soared up to 68 and 69 … but there it had to stop.” W P T 1940
“One of the fields has been given over to grow veg, while the house-gardens are filled with lettuces and other things that will help the war effort. The boys dig potatoes and pick veg.” W P T 1941
1940 also saw the construction of the cricket pavilion by Mr Edwardes and the boys.
