My informant Patrick Coyne wrote in with a question about a German bomber flying over Durban:
You may remember me as the guy who wrote LOOK BACK WITH PRIDE! , the history of Gordon Road Girls’ School, plus the parallel Durban history. In the book there was the story of the evacuee girl from England who dived under her desk when she heard a German bomber over Durban.
I have written to the media asking if anyone remembers that incident, and if so, what date it was, and what type of German bomber. It was of course a captured German bomber flown down from Tobruk to Durban for inspection. I want to write more about this. Any help you can give me will be appreciated.
UPDATE 9/6/2012: John Taylor has come up with a plausible explanation for this story in the comments below this story and he even sent in some pictures. I have added them here because I seem to have forgotten how to add pictures to a comment in WordPress.
