A Bombing Raid
When I was at school during the war there were no school dinners so we all went home to lunch. One day we left at the usual time and were sitting at lunch when there was an air raid. So we sheltered in our Morrison shelter( a sort of reinforced table). We returned to school at 2.00pm to find that three sisters had been at home when there was a direct hit on their house. In spite of this they too were back at their desks at 2.00pm! I remember the teacher asking if anyone had spare clothes that they might take, they had none left.
