Aberdeen remembers the Blitz...

#1
....it happened on a Thursday! according to the local paper. (It was actually a Wednesday, but not like a newspaper to investigate facts).

Big story in the local paper today, interviews with "survivors" and so on.

For those of you interested, here is the story (not from the paper) Aberdeen Blitz

This was the only serious bombing raid on Aberdeen, despite Aberdeen having 4 barracks, a massive ship yard and an RAF squadron.

We had it hard up here you know!

"There were earlier raids on Aberdeen. While 6 LAA Battery were there between 1939 and 1940. They were manning Lewis guns and had telegraph poles made to look like Heavy Guns"

Coincidentally, this is what I had read last night in Ian Rankin's "The Falls"

"The story went that when the Titanic sank, the headline in the Courier had been 'Dundee Man Lost at Sea'. Not that the paper was parochial or anything"

Imagine my disappointment when I found out that the headline was an urban legend.

I heard the bomb was stripped for scrap before it hit the deck.
No it was caught in fishing nets and is preserved and used by the SNP as a reminder of "look what trouble those bloody english get us into"
