‘CALL OF DUTY’ TALE SPARKS MEM­O­RIES

Norfolk - - THE MARDLER -

Sir - I was in­ter­ested to read your ar­ti­cle ‘Call of Duty’ [Nor­folk, May] as I have known the story of PC Gut­teridge all my life but I did not know he was a Nor­folk boy.

The car was stolen from the first prop­erty on the right in Mount­ness­ing Road, Bil­ler­icay. The last per­son to speak to PC Gut­teridge was Mr Watt, a Lon­don bus driver, who only had a few pas­sen­gers, so stopped for a chat.

Watty, as he was known, was a real char­ac­ter and I was lucky to have known him when he lived at Green’s Farm, Jack­son’s Lane, Bil­ler­icay.

The first po­lice­man on the scene was my fa­ther, Robert Green, born in Gay­wood near King’s Lynn.

Some­where I have press cut­tings and pho­to­graphs of the fu­neral.

As my only daugh­ter died sev­eral years ago on my death they will be de­stroyed. Is there any­one who would like them? Heather Lester

Old Buck­en­ham
