Can You Help?


This website was four years in the making, as I ventured back and forth to the National Archives in Kew, London, collecting the information I needed to tell the story of the German air raids on Britain in the First World War - the First Blitz. The website has proved far more popular than I had imagined and I hope it is providing answers to the questions many people have about the history of where they live and of their families who lived through this extraordinary time.


To achieve this, inevitably I have had to invest a fair amount of money and continue to do so to keep the website available and online.


If you have found the website useful, interesting or helpful, would you be happy to make a small donation towards the upkeep of the website? Even just a £1 (or a dollar) would help offset these running costs, although if you’d like to give more…. If you can help just click on the button below and make a donation through PayPal.


Many thanks for considering this.
