National Fire-fighters Memorial

This bronze memorial strongly reminded me of the horrific stories retold on the BBC in a recent(ish) documentary series marking 70 years since the start of the Blitz (7th September, 1940). [[Damned if I can remember the name of the series now.]]

The fire-fighters are facing St Paul’s Cathedral – a massive structure which managed to come through the war in one piece. British Pathé has a few minutes of archive footage about the damage to the building.

There is supposed to be a website for the memorial but it currently doesn’t seem to be working.
