Hitler's first raid on Leicester was 78 years ago today

The first German bombs of World War II to land on Leicester fell 78 years ago today.

Jo Vigor-Mungovin sent this tweet earlier today with photographs of the damage and one of the victims.

I blogged about this raid recently after looking for the birthplace of C.P. Snow. On that walk I found that Saffron Hill Road still exists, but only just.
