    Not really any help to this particular topic I admit, but my mother used to work for the Short Aircraft Company in Rochester.

    Here's a link telling you a bit about the airplane works there if anyone is interested:

    It certainly does. It was built around 1069 and rather dominates the skyline of Rochester. There's a particularly good pub not far away from it, but unfortunately not quite so old!

    Have a look:

    Rochester Castle

    The pilot and second pilot of a Short Stirling in the cockpit of their aircraft, October 1941. Probably No. 7 Squadron at Oakington.
