A miss is as good as a mile the saying goes, but I wonder. as you head south out of Shilton railway station the train crossed a small valley on a large embankment, a huge bomb struck the base of the embankment luckily not damaging the rail, had it have done so many troop trains guns, tanks etc would have rolled down that embankment causing one of the biggest disasters of the war, just a few inches more would have done it, I and my brother stood on the edge of the crater less than eight hours after it struck, no photo's, not in print anywhere, just memories, part of the war that got lost in time.

Interesting series of photos by George Rodger here, all purported to be in Coventry - some have appeared before on the forum

Of those images labelled as London, the one of mangled bus stops is obviously Coventry.
