1941 BLITZ OF PLYMOUTH REMEMBERED
THIS WEEK, 76-years-ago – the historic centre of Plymouth was wiped away forever by waves of Nazi bombers that destroyed the heart of the city. On the 60th anniversary of the bombing we held a memorial service at Charles Church and invited the German Ambassador who attended in a spirit of reconciliation, said Kevin Kelway director of Dorcas Media.
“I wrote to Clarence House at the time and the late Queen Mother responded with a brief letter to the people of Plymouth and talked about the ‘fortitude of Plymothians during the Blitz’. The Queen Mother and King visited the city in March 1941 after the city endured some of the most intensive bombing of the War,” said Mr Kelway.
