I know I am getting ‘up along’ now but I seem to remember that the hero of the RAF in WWII lived in Douglas Road, Harpenden on the left hand side entering from Luton Road. This would have been between 1962 and 1965. He died in London in 1982.
My wife does not recall this and she used to mark up the papers at Hockaday’s on a daily basis.
Does anyone remember whether this was fact or some fault in my memory? Did he live in Harpenden? The answer is ‘No’ but he did visit to play golf
