I remember Jim Longson; I think he lived up Elnor Lane.

He was in the second world war and was captured by the enemy. He wrote a book about it; I think he may have even escaped.

He had a son also called Jim; he was killed in a motorbike accident on the road to Chapel when he was very young. Perhaps 16 or 17.

I might be able to find out.

Jim did write a book about his exploits at Arnhem, operation Market Garden, the film 'A Bridge Too Far' was all about it. I have a signed copy of the book if anyone wants to borrow it.
