Ginger' origins

WEJ does not say where Ginger comes from in Black Peril but there are a lot of small mining villages in the North East of England and Ginger knew where Cramlington Aerodrome was so I think originally WEJ meant him to come from the North East but when it came to Spain he thought that more people would know where Yorkshire was so he changed the area slightly at that time. As far as I know Yorkshire was not mentioned between Spain and Sees Too Much.

Also I suspect WEJ had to avoid mentioning a smallish easily identifiable area, and Yorkshire is suitably big and anonymous.
