I hope someone can add a bit more to the story.
My uncle George Dent was in the back garden of his inlaws house called 'Tyne View' on the banks of the Tyne in Hebburn during WW2. A German bomber returning to the North Sea after bombing Spillers flew past low over the river to dodge the guns. The bomber was so close, the Pilot gave George a wave as he flew past. George's daughter is a regular on the board (Monica Sutherland)
