Douglas P. Jackson (b. 1900), head ARP Warden for Red Row was also the elementary school head teacher at Red Row, living in the 'School House'. His wife Jennie (b. 1900) also gave up time for the ARP., serving in the ARP Reporting Centre

Interesting list of Drifts in the article.

East Chevington
Red Row
South Broomhill
North Broomhill
Woodside.

I don't think we've seen the South Broomhill drift on the maps yet, it was in (or close to) the Hadson School field somewhere. I think one map has a spoil heap but no actual drift marked.

As for Woodside? where was that one?

South Broomhill drift was situated in the field between Druridge avenue and South Broomhill school .More or less opposite my grand parents house.
