Rare color footage of London blitz found

Brittish lady by the name of Jane responded: “For Warren Paine……oh you are absolutely right….the nasty British started the Bltz on the poor peace loving Nazi……. Why don’t you read about the Zeppelin attacks on England and the sea bombardment of our costal towns in WWI…… and while you are about it, would you do yourself a favour and perhaps type Guernica into your search engine. Obviously you have one.

The Luftwaffe were practicing bombing cities even in 1937….long before we wicked Brits could start it agaist the Basques in Spain (which actually wasn’t even their war!!).

I wonder if maybe that is why all children were evacuated from our cities at the outset of the war???



LONDON – Rare color footage of the bomb damage inflicted on London during World War II has surfaced on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Blitz.

The dramatic footage shows the destruction of several London landmarks, including the flagship John Lewis store on Oxford Street.

The film was released Monday by Westminster Council to mark the start of the devastating German bombing campaign that began September 7, 1940, and continued until May 1941.

The film was found in the attic by the family of an air raid warden who shot it on the home movie equipment in use in the 1940s.

The footage also shows wartime leader Winston Churchill visiting bomb sites to assess the damage.
