This is a rough sketch drawn by my father(a war artist) during WW2 of the damage done by a V1 flying bomb on Winchester Court, Kensington Church street London.The drawing shows rescuers at work looking for survivors.We lived a short way behind the wrecked building.
My father was standing in a shop doorway more or less centre of the picture when the bomb exploded. He was blown to the back of the shop by the blast but un-injured,unfortunately a poor soul inside the shop was killed by the plate glass window which had preceded him.
