"Ted Laxton was killed in an air raid on Bedford in the early morning 30th July 1942. He had been watching the raid from his house at 176 Kimbolton Road, Bedford, with his neighbour, Percy Bandy, from number 147. A German bomber dived unexpectedly and released four bombs which fell in a line from the foot of Cleat Hill, to Ted’s house, a house at the corner of Putnoe Lane, and allotments in Kimbolton Road."
