Watford Observer: On this day in south west Hertfordshire On this day in south west Hertfordshire

Hitler's face has disappeared from Bushey. The local residents appear to have taken a patriotic dislike to it after abusing it in approved fashion during the recent sports meeting at Bushey in the Royal Masonic School grounds. It was a large sideshow, being at least 10 feet high and five feet wide and, strangely enough, has just disappeared.
