Another reader, David Thomas, also remembered the bombing of 1942 and the aircraft crash three years later. Three bombs fell on the Nunthorpe estate on April 29, 1942," he said. "The first totally demolished 19 and 21 with 23 and 25 being badly damaged and pulled down afterwards. The second bomb fell in the garden of our house (number 41), destroying the back of 39 and 41 but this was rebuilt and we returned home in October 1942. The crater was filled in later. The third bomb demolished a pair of semi detached houses in South Bank Avenue."
