"Bombed out - information needed"

A review of Woodgreen & Tottenham Weekly Herald by Jack Bourne written on Wednesday 14th of October 2009


I lived at Alpha Road Edmonton and in the early years of the war was bombed out.The bomb landed in the rear garden of the house next door killing neighbours. On the same night, 'Maison Owides' on the boundry was bombed out. I would like to know when this happened as I cannot find details.

I had previously been evacuated from Rainham Road school Edmonton, to Braintree in Essex. Leaving there and returning home to be bombed out! My parents returned me to Braintree only to find that refuge bombed out and the host family moved a short distance away.

Later returning home to what was now Sherringham Avenue I attended Coleraine park school.

I then started at the Tottenham County school and can clearly remember Stoney South and Asplin Road bombings.

How so many more words can describe feelings or memories but only time can heal or fade..
