Betty describes her father
as a brilliant shot with a gun. He used to go about in his pony and
cart and she can remember him shooting pheasants from the cart standing
Later on in life he was boilerman at Weybourne Army
Camp, but in his early years he made his living from the heath and the
marsh and his allotment.
He was a Warrener. Rabbits were the only meat most
people had in those days.
Roy remembers going rabbiting with his father. It was
his job as a boy to catch the little rabbits. He would sell them to people
for rabbit pies, at a shilling for 4 or5 in a bunch.
