One Sunday morning there was a crowd gathering at the corner of the street
the lady who lived there was known as Florrie Plum, it appears that her
husband had gone absent without leave and two men from his regiment had
come to take him back, there was a jeep parked in front of the house,
Florrie could be heard screaming and swearing then two soldiers appeared
coming out of the house dragging her husband who had his tunic half on and half
off with Florrie hanging on to him and threw him into the back of the jeep then
drove off with Florrie still ranting and raving. That was to come back and haunt
me many years later when I did escort duty on three occasions.
