Breckenridge - " When the house reached roof level stepfather [Blayney Percival] employed an Anglo Indian carpenter called Shallcross to make the trusses, doors and windows. He was an excellent craftsman and a very pleasant gentleman. Punch and I got on with him very well, he told us wonderful stories about India. He left when the house was completed and moved to my uncle Philip Percival who was a big game hunter, where he did a lot of work making equipment boxes for his safaris. We often saw him again when visiting their farm   {mid 1920s}
