|Sheringham returned to winning ways with a hard working
display and went ahead in the first half by goal poached by J Pasque this unsettled top of
the league Scole and Sheringham should have scored more before half time.
At the start of the second half Scole came out to attack but Sheringhams Back four held
them and with another outstanding display by Ben Wright. Sheringham's keeper helped keep
Sheringham ahead until a well worked goal came from Scole to level the score to 1-1.
Some positional changes from Sheringham helped strengthened the midfield and Scole found
it hard to break through. Sheringham took the lead again by a good goal from J Denegri,
Sheringham's top scorer this season and held on to a well-deserved victory.

Referring to the plane crash on December 6th 1939, I was with my Father, amongst others as
the plane was washed ashore. It had been arranged before the War that the maroons would
not be fired to alert the Lifeboat crews and helpers, so this was done by call outs. In
the early hours of that night, I heard the loud noise of an aircraft making such a noise
as if in trouble. At that moment, Mr Henry 'Downtide' West, shouted up at our house. I
immediately called my Father, we got ourselves ready and set off in the blackout. A
terrible night, with northerly gale and squalls of rain or sleet. My Father was concerned
that I was going, but others were running too. When we got to the end of the West Prom,
near the chalets, we went down the steps onto the stones and some men were getting into
the sea to get a rope onto the plane, which was being washed ashore. There were no bodies
in her at that time, but a pair of binoculars hung in the cockpit. Early the next
morning we decided to go along and have another look at her, but as we walked along the
beach or prom, we were stopped by hundreds of military police. We saw then that she was a
German plane. We could not go near her and there were all sorts of rumours as the London
papers and placards were full of a secret weapon that had brought her down. She was a
Heinkel 115, she had been mine laying and two of her crew had been washed out. Later they
were washed ashore.
On December 23rd, my Father Henry William West came home and told us that the two men were
to be buried at the cemetery along the Weybourne Road. I decided to go along, it was a
bitterly cold day with snow showers. I stood near the hedge on the East Side of the
cemetery with a few others. Full military honours and a German flag was draped over the
coffins. Later these two men were moved to Cannock Chase, I wrote an account of this
in my book called 'Memoirs of a Shannock'. A photograph of the plane was the front piece
of my book 'Shannocks' in Wartime.
Yours sincerely, May Ayers
