Bomb map of London

This article was posted in Miscellaneous, UK History.

Those with London ancestors who lived in London during WW2, and particularly the Blitz, may be interested in a new online ‘Bomb Map’.

Created by the University of Portsmouth from various bomb census records held in the National Archives it shows the place where every German bomb dropped by aircraft on London during a period of 8 months from October 1940 and June 1941.

Additional background information has been added from the BBC’s WW2 People’s War memories and photographs from the Imperial War Museum.

The map does not work in all browsers, Visit the website at www.bombsight.org..
