And Mr Bunting didn't know much about the war either until Norway and Denmark were invaded in the spring of 1940, he carried on with his job whilst the Germans overran Holland, and the Belgian and French withdrawals forced our troops to evacuate from Dunkirk. Bunting was digging for victory when France capitulated and the war moved across the channel and the immortal Battle of Britain was on in the air. But the RAF were ready and destroyed 'undreds of the bu-, er, Junkers.
