Bombing

October 1941

By JEANNE DOWARD

My family lived in Handside Lane, No.63′ when we were bombed out in 1941.   The bomb took out most of the front of our house.  I was sleeping under the stairs, and both my father and our Dog dove on top of me.  We were all able to climb out of the rubble virtually unhurt except for a few minor cuts from splintered glass.  The house was leveled and eventually rebuilt.
