  1. My book, Air Raid Diary (the Luftwaffe attacks on Teesside, 1940-1943) tells the full story of the raid on Middlesbrough station 3 August 1942, as well as detailing all of the attacks on the wider Teesside are from Hatrlepool to Whitby. Available from Waterstones, WH Smith, Guisborough Bookshop or direct from me (via my website)

  2. My great uncle was one of the casualties on this plaque but his name is wrong it should be George William BARRETT.
