London Blitz map

For those of us who had relatives in London during the Blitz, which includes my grandfather, Find out how close he or she came to being one of the 20,000 London fatalities from German bombing. The database includes every bomb dropped on London between 7 October 1940 and 6 June 1941.

Several bombs are shown as having fell close to the road where my grandfather lived in Kingsbury, Brent.

Thanks to Gail Dever for the lead.
