Writing her memories during the 1970s, Doris Annie Pigott (1905-1994), daughter of Edwin Richard Billingham, who ran a music shop at 12 Station Road, described the "troops, from the Sherwood Foresters, Middlesex Regiment and others, all billeted in houses in the village and fed in local halls, to which they went with their billy cans. They had khaki uniforms with brass buttons which were polished each morning before Parade, and puttees. The platoons marched through the streets and held Church Parades on Sundays." (LHS ref. BF 20.19)
