Wisbech War Pictures

Wisbech is a Cambridgeshire port town on the River Nene, near The Wash. The raid took place in mid afternoon, whilst the weather was rainy.

Wisbech had a pretty lucky world war 2, escaping relatively unscathed.

There were some tragic incidents, though. On November 11th 1940, a lone German Bomber dropped bombs believed to be aimed at the Wisbech Gas Works.

Missing the target by several hundred metres, a huge bomb demolished houses in Albany Road.

At least one resident, believed to be Mrs South, was killed.
