1946 ... Colour Sgt William Booth from Winrose Drive was with his small patrol in the Japanese occupied Burma jungle. One of his group was carrying the large tin they used for brewing tea. It slipped and rolled down the steep hillside making loud clattering noises as it rolled down hitting rocks on the way down. Colour Sgt Booth said "it made enough noise to way the whole Japanese Army".
As it eventually came to rest at the bottom of the hill, the patrol froze, expecting to hear the machine guns, but there was nothing - not a sound. All of a sudden a Yorkshire voice said "Na then, tha's done it - no tea for us this trip"
Colour Sgt Booth went on to Sumatra after his time in Burma.
