    3. [S35] Bucks Herald, A War Prisoner, 5 Mar 1943.
      Posted missing on January 3rd last, it is now learned that Private H. S. Stevens, whose home is at 12, Council Houses, Great Kimble, is a prisoner of war. Educated at the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe, Private Stevens was mobilised with the Territorials just before the outbreak of war. He was transferred to the Royal Artillery, and later volunteered as a parachutist, and as such he was serving when he was captured.

    5. [S35] Bucks Herald, Welcome to Returned Prisoner-of-War, 25 May 1945.
      It was with considerable relief and thankfulness that the friends and neighbours of Mrs. Stevens, of 12, Council Houses, Great Kimble, heard on Thursday, May 10th, that her son, Sidney (Kimble's only prisoner), was safely back in England. On Friday, there was much rejoicing when he reached home. On Friday evening the children of Council Houses decided to mark the occasion with a huge bonfire and the burning of an effigy of Hitler. A number of friends and neighbours gathered to welcome Sidney, who voiced his thanks and joy at being home again after an absence of over three years. Dancing went on till almost midnight.
