Before I published my 'Good old Jarrow' book I did a bit research for something to put into the Book. I already knew a bit about the Great Man from Surrey called Sir John Jervis and I wanted to publicise what he did for our area because it's all been forgotten.
Most people in this area vote a certain way (No Politics on here please) because their parents and grand parents voted that way, yet Sir John did more for Jarrow than anyone else ever did and amazingly he wasn't even in that Party people automatically vote for here.
I hoped that by telling the story of Sir John in my book it might make people think before they vote.
What a great man he was and I had no idea some of it was your work Tom.
Regarding my story about the Bomb Factory, I have scans of the booklet with all that information in it. Thanks to Colin McFadyen for lending me it and the album. See below.
