It's a fact

Squadron Leader Jack Currie DFC, the famous bomber pilot, who wrote the greatest wartime book about bombing operations during WW2 is buried in Easingwold Church Yard. He settled at Easingwold because he was then an instructor at the Home Office Civil Defence School, Hawkhills, nearby. He wrote his book over many years whilst enjoying a pint in the George Hotel and was a very likeable local character and his description of flying on bombing missions is unparalleled. He was also featured in a BBC Documentary titled "The Lancaster Legend".
