Just watched YouTube 'Coventry Blitz in colour 1940'. Well worth a look! Hope this link will work. Edited by member, 16th Nov 2018 3:59 pm

A very poignant photo for Coventrians.

Prof, I have the very same photo taken by the CET, believe this one is the Lady Chapel, but the link was brill.

Well Kaga, it is actually the Sanctuary but the Lady Chapel is on the left of photo. I think I am right.

Thanks Prof. Whatever, that night sure tore the heart out of it and the heart of a lot of people. Even in daylight for some weeks there was a dark and evil cloud about the ruins. Centuries of history alighting on the floor, then vanishing. For years I tried to fit my mind around it without success.

But the blitz held many stories. An old man was dug out of a shelter and people were deeply concerned about him, they took him to C and W Hospital but he would not let go of his birdcage. A nurse took the cage off him, dusted the top. The bird was huddled on the floor of the cage apparently dead, but the nurse, obviously a pet lover, revived it with warm milk with a drop of brandy. The effect on the old man was miraculous, he at once became revived also, despite his shock - only the welfare of his only friend was important.
