Hi,Excellent site (and local enough to me to explore) - however, your have an obvious inaccuracy on the walberswickww2.co.uk site - it's on the Infantry Weapons page.You have an image captioned as a 'pre war training with the Boys anti-tank rifle'... Well that is NOT a Boys AT rifle. It is in fact a Bren on a tripod (which is not seen all that often). The tripod was also configurable as an anti-aircraft mount (they are not using it in that role in the image). The givaways (other than they look very different to anyone who has ever seen the two weapons) are that the Bren in the picture has a curved magazine; a carring handle forward of the magazine; and a folded bipod at the fore-end of the weapon. The Boys bipod was in the centre of the weapon. Oh, and it is clearly a Bren. Also the Boys was not used with a tripod mount.Yours,Chris Holden firstname.lastname@example.org

Very interesting site, as a kid I used to play in and on the 'block houses' in the Mile Field between Blythburgh and Walberswick.

I am researching the WW2 defences of Southwold and surroundings for a biographer whose latest project is an artist who lived in Southwold at that time. I have found this site extremely informative and it has given me valuable details about various aspects of the war in Suffolk at that time.
VP Team: many thanks for your comments, and we are glad that the website has helped!
