A FASCINATING piece of Northumberland’s wartime history has been unearthed.

Stephen Lewins, from Morpeth, came across this signed Christmas Dinner menu from RAF Stannington in 1943 and decided to share it with Herald readers.

The former base was used as an officer and administration training centre in the county.

It was operational before the nearby RAF Tranwell/Morpeth base.
