Portsmouth Remembers The Blitz: 70 Years Later They Cannot Forget

by | 10th, January 2011

AT Portsmouth, only a very small crowd were there to remember the 1,013 victims of the Blitz. On Monday January 10, 2011, the Germans bombed the city. Seventy years ago may seem a long time. But to many, the terror of that bloody time has never gone away. The names of the dead were read aloud.

If you cannot fully imagine the horror – and who sane can? –  Roger Halson, is here to talk:

“All those in the basement were killed. My granddad was killed but my mum was blown clear, badly injured and buried but survived thanks the heroic efforts of the rescue workers. But in that instance she lost her parents, her sister and 11-month-old baby, her first child.”

Never forget.
