LONDON WW2

Postby a-s-e » Fri Dec 07, 2012 12:05 am

Just seen this website on sky news showing all the bomb sights in London between 7th Oct 1940 and 6th June 1941. May be of interest ?

Actually it doesn't show all of London just part of it and not all records are used (see the FAQs), it is obvious by the lack of bomb sites that it is incomplete. There are still some places that were bombed but their locations were not known or reported and in recent times the bombs have had to be defused or blown up, there was a big one in the River Thames a decade or so ago. At least the British Government didn't try to hide the London Blitz like they tried to over the bombing of Clydebank in Glasgow by Germany and tried to deny it had happened!.
