War veteran features in book

The memories of a war veteran from Willingdon have been published in a book to capture the event of a fateful night where hundreds of men lost their lives.

John Watson, known as Jack, survived the events of March 30, 1944, but sadly other men from the Royal Air Force Bombers Command were not so lucky.

His account has been told to author John Nichol, for his book The Red Line - Thr Gripping Story of the RAF’s Bloodiest Raid on Hitler’s Germany.

In this video Mr Watson talks about his memories of that night.
