Christmas Eve bombings in Oldham

Date published: 25 July 2022


I'm writing a book for Pen and Sword on the V1 (doodlebug) campaign and am particularly interested in the Christmas Eve bombings in Oldham in 1944.

I wondered whether any of your readers have first hand accounts or memories of that time that they would be willing to share with me.

If so, please contact me, Jan Gore, via email at:
