    I read this watery eyed.

    A good web-site but very sad: the wedding dress still hanging on the wall when the house was demolished, the little boys in their pyjamas, mothers looking for their babies in the mortuary, the words from Ormskirk .. 'that's Liverpool burning'



    It makes you think.


    My nan told us lots about the blitz.

    Yes Spike I certainly needed my tissue. I hate war, particularly when I read the memories shown on sites like that.

    Thank you so much for posting.

    BTW.
    I worked for a man who was a fire watcher in WWII. He told the story of one night a man, new home from work and frying up bacon for his supper, when the bomb fell nearby...this chap was found standing in the street outside...with the frying pan still in his hand.

    Bootle,apparently,was the most heavily bombed area in the country! Little credence has ever been given to the fact,possibly for propaganda reasons,during the war,but surely since,some recognition of this would be appreciated,even now!!
