Leonard, known as “Peno”, was Joe’s third son, born on 14 May 1902.

Like his brother, Jack, he was clearly bright and was duly apprenticed as a Pattern-maker. He would have served his apprenticeship in the Pattern-making Shop c.1916-1923.

He put the woodworking skills that he learnt there to excellent use in making furniture in his spare time.

Peno left RJ Lane & Sons to set up a large caravan park at Twigworth
