I have had several ideas about Assignment 3. The one I am going to start with, is to research Cpl Colin Turner (see Assignment 2) to see if there is a story behind his death in service in 1940.

If there is no story there, I have a friend who plays in a band, another who makes and sells to craft fares, and two farmers. There must be story there somewhere.
