The Port of London Was Relentlessly Bombed by the Luftwaffe

 

London Docks

Fires set by bursting German bombs lit up the docks along the River Thames in London, on September 7, 1940 and brought into vivid relief the merchant ships lying alongside the many docks which line London’s busy port. British sources said the bombing that night was the heaviest of the war to date. (AP Photo) #
