Dundee in The Hot WarEdit

After the atomic bombing of Sculthorpe in 1952, most of its surviving men and materiel were relocated to an airfield near Dundee. Planes from this airfield illegally crossed neutral Finland to bomb Petrozavodsk as part of Operation Long Reach.[1]

Dundee in The War That Came EarlyEdit

It was into an area near Dundee, that Germany's Deputy Führer Rudolf Hess parachuted out of an airplane in 1940. British Army Staff Sergeant Alistair Walsh, who was on leave and happened to be bicycling nearby, swiftly took Hess into custody.[2]
