Picadilly Circus--"The Blitz was going on. We'd go to a movie, and the sirens would go off. There wasn't much protection; they were using the V-1 by this time, a rocket with a very high trajectory. You could hear a whole block going out when it hit. They were called blockbusters. You'd have to be way underground to survive that."

St. Paul's Cathedral--"We went up on St. Paul's Cathedral--up in the dome. The desolation around St. Paul's...that was a very definite targeted area for the Blitz."

My father served in the 1255th, and has pictures of the men standing in front of the headquarters, among others taken while in Europe. Does anyone remember a Robert Estey?

My father served in the 1255th stateside. He was sent off water purification school, and while away, the battalion shipped out to Europe. Anyone remember Leonard Neff from Chicago?

Sorry, I don’t think Clarence checks these pages for comments. I’ll make sure he knows.
