Mapping London: Bombs during the Blitz

This is particularly relevant as I'm told they pulled a bomb out during the regeneration of Chinbrook Meadows, home of the River Quaggy, in 2002. Wickham Road SE4, close to where I live now, had more than its fair share of bomb damage with many houses destroyed during the Blitz and a handful of unfortunate souls losing their lives. Here it has been mapped. London Blitz Map
My mother Ruby, who was an SRN trained at UCH, rode the ambulances around town attending to those injured during the Blitz in Central London.To say that she had 'seen it all' before she had me was an understatement.
