Rumours are circulating in Ashford that tradesman Mr G. Crump had been taken to Dover Castle and shot as a spy, his son had committed suicide and his brother in Folkestone was also a spy. In fact, both Mr Crump and his brother are WWI veterans, his son is in the RAF, and both he and his wife are engaged in war work. A similar cruel rumour was recently circulating about the owner of a pie shop in Maidstone.
