Scope and content

Paul and Les Bovington owned the wet fish shop in the High Street and they also sold some fruit and veg and a few groceries. When the USAF ran what is now RAF Brize Norton, they were asked to get some photographs of their personnel in some local shops to give family back home in the states an idea of what our shops looked like and the picture with the USAF gentleman in is one of the pictures they took. Les left Paul to run the shop and disappeared from his family for several years and was found to be living in Scotland. Paul gave Saturday jobs to many local boys and girls and in one picture you can see Jackie Martin on the left a little behind Dawn Wheeler.
