Photograph, World War Two, Home Front (1939-1945) 1940.

Between September 1940 and May 1941 London was constantly bombed in the 'Blitz'. The Germans hoped to 'soften up' the British population and to destroy its morale before their planned invasion. During this period more than 20,000 Londoners were killed and 1.4 million were bombed out of their homes.
