Breaker, Breaker for a copy, 10-4 good buddies- did you know Fakenham’s CB man..?

The big thing in the early 80s? CB radio had reached Fakenham.

Back in 1982, citizen's band or CB radio was the big thing.

Many went into business top supply the growing demand from breakers - as afficianados were known - for equipment like radio sets and aerials.

We'd love to track down the gentleman pictured plying his wares from a caravan on Fakenham Market.

We came across the picture whilst poring through Claudie Jones's photo albums for a feature on the Fakenham Olivet Club, which was set up in that era.

If you're the CB man, or you know where we can find him, please get in touch.
