The moral fibre and courage demonstrated by our nation during WWII was incredible. Sadly it wouldn't be the same now.

The poster was produced after the destruction of Super Marine. My mother (and other relatives) were working there during the Raid. My Grandmother ran the two miles to the factory before the all clear .... My Father was working at Thornycroft - just next door to SM.
In the Picture attached, SM is on the waterfront centre; next to it on the right is the floating bridge; on the right of the bridge is the edge of the Thornycroft shipyard.
Most of the housing behind Super Marine and to the left was destroyed.

Interesting photographs. Woolston looks like it took one hell of a pounding!

Thanks

Interesting that the then equivalent of the Youth Service was tasked with engaging young men in using their free time to support the war effort.
