Legend has it that John Lennon was born during an air raid on Liverpool.
New research suggests that no German attacks took place in Liverpool on the night of October 9, 1940.
However, the official Beatles biographer Hunter Davies says: ‘That’s what John himself told me, ditto his Aunt Mimi and his father Fred.
'It was the family legend, still going strong in 1968. I’m not changing it now.’ [Link]
