Year 7 joined Yr8 pupils from Churchill to look at the resources supplied by North Shields Library and research Victor Mercer who lived in the area and signed up to the war effort at the age of 16 1/2. We were lucky enough to find out all about him and then meet his 96 year old nephew Harold Mercer who had been in the RAF during WW2 - 96 years old and such a lovely gentleman.
