The bombing of Conduit Street on 19th November 1940.

    I lived in Conduit Street with my grandma and grandad. We had to go under the stairs when the sirens went. They were heading for London Road station and the bombs dropped in our street and surrounding streets. When it was over, we came from under the stairs and found our windows were blown right out and we had a canary in a cage. The cage door was open and both the cat and canary had vanished! We got on the doorstep and a few doors down all the houses were flattened. There was one lady who had a parrot, but we never did find either her or the bird.
