Sheffield Blitz 12-13Th And 15-16Th December 1940

Recommended Posts

Sub-Lieutenant Geoffrey Gledhill Turner

Sub-Lieutenant (later Commander) Turner was a member of the RNVR.

Sub-Lieutenant Tuner was called to deal with many unexploded mines in the early part of the Blitz. One fell near the LMS Station at Sheffield, closing the station.

On 21 December 1940 another fell in the wool factory, Great Howard Street, Liverpool and was partly suspended by its parachute, with its nose on the ground floor and the bomb-fuse hidden. Great case had to be taken in the handling of this mine which weighed nearly a ton. Sub-Lieutenant was successful in removing the fuses of both these mines before they could explode.

70th anniversary of the Blitz.

Probably already mentioned elsewhere, but better repeated than not here.

Do any of the OS maps show evidence of the Blitz ? Like holes where there should be buildings ? Might be nice to see links to maps to enhance these recollections.
