  1. I'll try and find out some info - I'd guess the pitchforking is bull as the person who'd have done it would have been a war criminal and imprisoned. There weren't that many Luftwaffe aircraft to come down in our area as the anti-aircraft weren't fired all the time due to night fighters operating. Most of the German stuff around Sheffield is from the Doodle Bug raid meant for Manchester on 24/12/44. Kev - the RAF base at Thorpe Salvin housed Lysanders for covert missions The only German plane with 3 crew were BF110 night-fighters so it's unlikely that it would have flown to Sheffield (think its out of range but will need to check a book)

  5. Just seen a small yellow wedge shaped car on Hawke Street, anyone know what it was - kinda looked like a Citicar fro the US in the 80's. Cheers

  12. Not all the lines are gone - most are simply buried like on Division Street
  13. I'm also trting to invite each group individually, I'm having to do this on a one at a time basis so it's taking a while, so if you haven't received one yet it's not because I've forgotten you. If you e-mail us if you want your news/meetings added it'll save me some time Cheers Dave C
  14. Last year the Priories Historical Society launched a blog to publicise the history and archaeology news for Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire, the blog has been a real success with over 650 people visiting the site last month alone. We now want to expand the blog by helping all the local museums, history societies, metal detectorists and archaeology groups spread the news of their events, meetings and news. This will help gain as much attendance to your events as possible. All the postings are free as the sole aim of the blog is to be a publicity campaign for Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire's proud heritage. We are in no way in competition with any other society, blog or website and will quite happily publicise these as well. We see all societies as equal regardless of size or location. To send us any information or news please e-mail us at: priorieshistoricalsociety@rocketmail.com The blog site is located at: http://priorieshistoricalsociety.blogspot.com/ I hope to hear from you soon David Cook Publicity Officer Priories Historical Society
