Luftwaffe Try

John Knibb remembers :-
"Then came the bombing. I recall Mum shouting ‘Get up! They’re over!’ and my eyes opening to the night sky, through the open window, and seeing a most beautiful ‘Chandelier’.
I cowered under the stairs many nights wondering if the sixth of any stick would hit us. But although seeming to be near me they were aimed at the Docks five miles away.
There was some comfort from the occasional bang of the Deysbrook Lane Ack Ack gun! "
