Between the 7th and the 9th of May 1941, my home town of Kingston upon Hull was targeted by the Germans during World War Two.
My Mum was 17 at the time and i remember her telling me how scary it was and that the house she lived in with her parents had been bombed. Flattened completely, nothing left and all their possessions gone.
Today at the Carnegie Heritage Centre in Hull they held an exhibition of various photographs of Hull during The Blitz and some war hero’s even took some of their war memorabilia to display.
It really was interesting to see a map of Hull and listed on it was the one bomb that was the cause of my mum and grandparents homelessness.
Also a fly past had been arranged of a Spitfire but unfortunately it was grounded so a Hurricane flew over Hull
this second video, the Hurricane appeared over my head and it rather wiggly as i was losing my balance which isn’t good at the best of times hehe.
