hi I'm new to this Forum but I,m very interested in people who may remember Queens Building Scovell Road 16th Oct 1940 my Mum and Dad lived at 125 Scovell Rd with other family (Nan and Grandad) living above. I was evacuated at the time with my brother at St.Ives Cambridge. He came around to where I was builited and told me to come to the station with him as he was going home. Just as he was getting on the train he Said I dont Know when I'll be back co's all the family have been bombed out and no one can be found they think they are all dead I was six and cryed all the way back
They did find them I was told they were all in the shelter under the buildings and were dug out except for my uncle he died when the bomb dropped. I have other stories of this time but wonder if there is some one like this 100 year old lady who knows more
jim in Australia

Anyone got any Ideas where I may get any thing about the raid on Queens Blds 16th oct 1940 I'v read "the Story Of the Borough" but would love to get some more
maybe someone out there has a photo of the north end of the Buildings after it was bombed. on the side of the Building that was left standing, there was a big hole about the size of a car, that was our front room
wall It would not happen today but Mum told me to go up and see if I could find any of our things when I got up there I was in the passage when a copper came in he thought I was stealing and smacked me around the head all the way down the stairs with his gloves
untill I fell out into the road
AHH! the good old fashioned Copper
