Elizabeth's house was bombed in late July or early August 1940. Luckily the bomb landed in the garden, blowing in all the doors and windows and showering the family with glass and plaster, but leaving them all unhurt. This photograph, taken by the local vicar, shows the pock-marks left in the wall of the house by the blast. The film was developed by a friend in his home-made darkroom, hence the poor quality of the image.
