Bath Blitz: Memorial Service - 25th April 2008

There will be a memorial service to remember the 400+ citizens killed in the Bath Blitz.

On 2 nights in April 1942 the Luftwaffe bombed Bath. These "Baedekker raids', so called because legend has it that Hitler in anger at Allied bombing raids on German cities, grabbed the Baedekker guide book and flicked through the pages picking out Britain's most beautiful cities for reprisal bombing - Bath was one of those.

2008 will be the 66th anniversary of this event. The service will be conducted at the Memorial Gardens, Shatesbury Road at 7.00 p.m. on Friday 25th april 2008. The gardens, where there was a shelter which suffered a 'direct hit' with much loss of life. Our MP, Don Foster will be attedning. We hope many of you will be able to attend.
