Other information

George married in 1942 and had a farm in St Keverne. His son was born there, and tells us a bomb had gone off in a nearby field when he was being born ! A good job it missed their hidden explosives. Though George never talked of his time in Auxiliary Units his son knew where the OB was as he played around there as a lad after the war never knowing its original use.

George carried on with the farm until the late sixties rarely leaving the area due to the work involved. They gave up the farm after the sons had left home and moved to a Stud in Dorset where George went back to working with the horses again, another Stud followed and then they retired to Bath.

Thanks to his family, Lance Corporal Bloomfield was posthumously awarded the Defence Medal in 2020.
