January 10, 2009

The entries in this blog are a copy of a document in the York City Library which appears to have been prepared at the end of World War II as a record of the activities of the Civil Defence services in the city during the years 1940 – 1945.

The city of York suffered it’s heaviest raid as part of the so-called “Baedeker Raids” on 29th April 1942.
