Beeb, good perspective there from a young 'un. May I ask where that is from? Is it a book I could purchase?

Alice, if people were charged for the air raid shelters then how bloody bad was that? Civi street didn't ask to go to war.

Barbie, It wasnt a book cos I have copied & Pasted it , but I think I must be going nuts cos I cant recall were I lifted it from..........Ill get back to you if I can once again find the source.

Alice was the figure 10 Million People and not 10 million homes ? cos if it was the latter then that would probably have covered everyone in the country .

B.B. it could be a typing error although I am sure it said homes, after all an air raid shelter is per home not person, isn't it!  Laughing

Alice  you said 'People'  in the original Post.. Do you mean that it did actually say 'Homes in the Article you read ?

I don't have the link but I should imagine what I typed is what I read but that doesn't mean that I agree with it B.B.

In the meantime I came across this website which is rather interesting.

Thats a very informative website Alice, Ta !
The only downside of it is that the Author ,like so many others has brought out his airbrush and used it on Merseyside,,, When will this insult and injustice on the brave people of this area during WW2 ever be righted.... Here is what I am referring to, taken from that link..........What do you see wrong with it that is an utter disgrace...

...."  On 7 September 1940 the Germans began bombing London and by 1 January 1941 over 13,000 Londoners were killed. Other cities heavily bombed during the 'blitz' included Birmingham, Coventry, Bristol, Portsmouth and Plymouth."

I don't think it will ever be truly recognised now,B.B. Whatever the reasoning behind this pathetic cover-up, at the time, it should have been well accepted by now!  Mad
                                       I'd love to find out what the official government attitude towards the city was then,....and even now!?

Some information about the bombing.  I know Coventry got it bad but was it worse than Liverpool?
