Sheffield Blitz

On tonight's Calendar and we'll be meeting 94-year-old Doug Lightning.

He's reputed to be the last surviving fireman to be on duty on both nights of the Sheffield Blitz in 1940. He's heading the line-up of nonegenarian VIPs at the launch of a book called "Forgotten Memories of A Forgotten Blitz". It's all to raise money for a memorial fund.
