This "go it alone" tradition seems to carry on to the present day as another new Ice sculptures and chocolate fountain business has been started and is at this time going from strength to strength. by A E Morris Jnr and his wife Tania, so family members are still willing to have a go at anything.

Ancient vehicles, scuba diving property development, 1940`s re enactments, Book writing, and gardening by the green fingered Jean (1944). Generally speaking over the years they seem to have "had a go" at just about everything including a spate of politics by Kitty (1915) In later years Andrew (1969) had a foray in the Anti War Coalition attending demo`s in London and U.S. Air bases. Is the author of several books. Andrew at the present time is a supervisor in a big company. military service included William Wilkins serving in the R.A.F. as a military policeman both at home and abroad including Egypt. Ted Morris (1913) served in the R.A.S.C.in France, Italy, Belgium Holland and Norway and was actually a G.I. for a while after being rescued by American troops when his unit was all but wiped out by an S.S. division Ted despite being shot twice survived and with a few survivors fought on with the Americans until they could rejoin a British command and be re issued with British uniforms and kit. James Guy was a "Desert Rat" at El Alemein and Egypt as well as service in France Italy and Germany. Noel Griffiths is believed to have been one of the Welsh farmers who during WW11 was recruited into "The secret army" of potential resistance fighters to sabotage Nazi efforts if we had been invaded. Members had bunkers and secret arms dumps on their land. They were trained in the use of arms and explosives. Noel would never speak about this as they had been sworn under the official secrets act but after he died I found papers in his effects refering to this subject and recruitment papers which I passed on to his daughter. Roy (Ron) Stock in WW11 was an R.A.F. tail gunner in a bomber and due to the hazzards of the job was lucky to come through unscathed. Bob Clarke also served in WW11 as R.A.F. aircrew and was also one of the lucky few to return. During WW1 Stan Palmer was awarded the military medal postumously after he had rescued wounded comrades under fire. actions which finally got him killed. He has no known grave but is remembered on the large memorial at Ploegsteert military cemetary in Belgium........
