A time to remember in East Lothian
War historian Jack Tully-Jackson has appealed for help with his research into the role of female pilots who ferried planes to maintenance units near Haddington.
He is making a DVD about the landing grounds at Lennoxlove and Colstoun estates where all kinds of aircraft were repaired and stored during the Second World War from 1941 to 1946 before they went into active service.
Mr Tully-Jackson (88) of Hawthornbank Road, was involved with the military deception plan Fortitude North which was designed to mislead the Germans into expecting an invasion of Norway.
For the past 25 years he has captured the county’s part in the Second World War for posterity, producing his well-known audio-visual project ‘East Lothian at War’ which he is now putting on to more user-friendly DVDs.
