CONFESSIONS OF A NORFOLK NEWSHOUND 53 Roderic Leigh, my new colleague on the Dereham and district reporting rounds, went filming on Holkham Beach in Operation Crossbow, one of the main productions of 1964. The Second World War thriller also starred George Peppard, Tom Courteney, John Mills, Lilli Palmer, Anthony Quayle, Patrick Wymark, Jeremy Kemp, Trevor Howard, Silvia Sims and Richard Todd. Sophie Loren had a small part as a Dutch war widow – but didn’t call on her Norfolk fan club. While Roderic gloried in his role as a German sailor, I covered Royal British Legion and trades council meetings, flower shows, sporting fixtures, golden weddings, magistrates’ courts and two chimney fires.

C. Indeed, I achieved one of my big ambitions with them in the 1980s, returning to dear old Dereham to play on that sacred town turf in a Norfolk Junior Cup semi-final. We lost, but I had a bowl and lingered at the bar long enough to prove I could still talk a good game.
