Don't panic!!



If you're in the Woolwich area this afternoon at 4:43pm and hear an air raid siren, don't panic. The Firepower Museum will be sounding a siren to commemorate the start of The Blitz, 60 years ago. On the other hand, if you're reading this blog on a different day then walk calmly to your nearest Anderson Shelter and pray.

If you're young and have no concept of fear, of losing your house, your loved ones and your entire life, then just think for one minute how incredibly lucky you actually are.

Did you ever catch the doc on the destruction of Coventry through the war. The stories were really harrowing.
We owe a lot to that generation and it's bravery

Our house at the Herbert Road end of Shooters Hill celebrates it's centenary this year, but it almost didn't make it past WW2. The houses across from us were flattened by a bomb. This house lost all it's front windows, doors and the ceilings collapsed. Luckily the inhabitants were in the Anderson shelter in the garden and escaped unharmed. Sadly many of the people across the street were not so fortunate.

On a different subject, I'd like to add a link from our website to your blog, please email me: info@woolwichphotographic.com

Dr Jay,
I couldn't actually put it better myself. In fact, if you could translate, my lovely listeners can share your thoughts.

Thanks for the Dial Arch link. I have sampled the atmosphere there and very pleasant it was too.

Being a keen lensman myself, I am aware of the Woolwich Photographic Society. I will give you a mention soon.
