JCD I think you missed hyperions response to Francof. If JB Kitson had a 4.5ft beard then SHE belonged in a circus not as Lord Mayor of Leeds as she was in 1942/3. Churchill may well have visited Leeds more than once but there is no mention of one being while JBK was Lord Mayor in this short family biography http://jessiebeatricekitson.org/lordMayor.html

Geordie exile highlighted Hyman Morris
Nice tale francof.

But here's the real Mayor.

and here he is on May 16th 1942 from that article

Sorry Tyke Bhoy about that. At least I was correct about the Lord mayor at the time. Have spoken to my older sister and she says that Winston came again in 1945 as part of a Nationwide Victory tour. Regards J.C.D.
