Coventry Cathedrals

I am lucky to be alive . . . .

On the night of 14 November 1940, the city of Coventry was devastated by bombs dropped by the Luftwaffe. The Cathedral burned with the city, having been hit by several incendiary devices.
I was 4½ years old and heard the air raid syrens and ack-ack fire and bombs from my home in Widney Lane Solihull.

My cot was placed at the bottom of the stairs behind a wall of sand as a strong point

there on Friday
