War diary published after 56 years in case.
The fascinating World War II diary, which recalls bombing raids on Aberdeen, had been lying forgotten in a briefcase.
The diary of George Adie, called Our Air-Raid Shelter at 16-18 Cranford Terrace, has now been published by his family who found it.
Stationmaster George died at the age of 69 in 1946, and his school jotter diary was only found in a briefcase by relation Sandy Simpson after a death in the family.
Sandy, 65, said: "It is full of jottings about bombers and what it was like to live through World War II. We thought it was right and worthwhile to record all his wartime thoughts so they will not be forgotten after he took the trouble to do it."
The book went on sale in selected bookshops yesterday.
