Good day all. I have been contracted to write a book on Southwark (Bermondsey, Southwark and Camberwell) in the Blitz. The theme is a chronology 1940-45 supported by personal accounts, anecdotes, eye witness accounts.
I have collected a great deal in respect to the above but you can never have enough of this type of material
If any forum members have family stories etc I would love to have them for potential use in tne book. With a credit of course.
My Nan and great grandparents lived in a block on Dante Road and were sort of bombed out. Sort of bombed out as their block was destroyed by a crate of incendiary devices which hadn't opened and didn't ignite but smashed through the building.
That's the only (admittedly slightly boring) Southwark war story I know!
