Colin Turner's reminiscences of the bombing in Norwich on 14 April 1942

  • MC 3481, 1073X8
  • Fonds
  • nd [? 2018]

Tells how he and his family initially took shelter under the dining room table because the cement floor of their Anderson shelter was wet, but after explosions close by they went outside to the shelter. Also describes fire damage to Four Ways Garage [on the corner of Dereham Road and Guardian Road] and other buildings close by; damage to his own home; the bomb crater over the road; and finding shrapnel and fragments of incendiary bombs. However, Joan Banger's 'Norwich At War' (Norwich, 1974) does not mention any air raids on the city on 14 April 1942, so it is possible that Colin Turner misremembered the date, and that the raid was one of the 'Baedeker Raids' of 27-29 April 1942.
