  1. During the War my Mother and I spent time in her home town of Wombwell. We did however live in Bramley, Leeds. One of my earliest memories is being taken to the Anderson shelter because the air raid siren had sounded. My memory was that this was an unusual raid as it involved doodle bugs (V1’s) dropping on Sheffield. I may have thought this was a wrong memory but for the fact that I have corroboration from a friend who like me now lives in rural Northumberland. We are both nearly the same age born in 1940. He comes from Barnsley and we share not only similar interests but shared experiences. One of these is the doodle bug raid on Sheffield. He had been shown the resulting fires by his uncle from his bedroom. There must be many others who shared this memory closer at hand. Any takers?
