Don’t see many burkas amongst the crowd.
Good post! Thanks.
I can’t remember the exact details, and don’t have time to start Googling..but during the Blitz, there was one very tragic incident. A V-1 hit a school, and 20 or so very young kids and several teachers, were killed. There’s a very famous picture of all the victims..a class pic taken a few weeks before the event..
Thanks for posting this. It’s fascinating.
No cell phone. Internet access. No facebook...
Probably be masses of sobbing wet noodles in fetal positions...

I met the late Terry Walsh, Dr Who stunt coordinator back in the classic Dr Who days. He was always happy and smiling — but one time he remembered walking on the sidewalk in his bomb-hit London neighborhood. The childhood memory of a trail of blood running down the walkway of one ruined house turned him somber in an instant, like it had just happened.
Yes, thanks..that’s the one...I thought it was a V-1..my bad...were you able to find the pic of all the kids? It’s haunting...
Reminds me of the “Narnia” series.
Now, such kids spend their time vandalizing bus stops and assaulting pensioners.
Oh, that would be sight wouldn’t it? They would probably wonder why all the progressive agendas like abortion and homo marriage hadn’t made the world love them.
As a New Yorker who has gone through 9/11 and the blackout of the entire east coast several years ago (we assumed it was a terrorist plot), I can say we behaved quite nicely, thank you. I didn’t see one kid crying during these two events.
I understand your point....but comparing 9/11 and waves of nightly bombing raids not knowing if your life will snuffed out any moment...is a little different. .
Plus that was 12 years ago....and our children are being trained to not think for themselves...
I also have a friend who survived the Blitz - he was taken into the countryside where he lived in a great mansion - unlike his East End home. Sadly, as much as I love this person, he's the biggest scaredy cat I've ever met!
Imagine setting off a tear gas canister in a school to test the kids now. lol.
Now London is only 40% English
