Saturday WW2 is coming to Bishops House and I am going as member of French Resistance giving out code sheets to children so they can decode the messages. There is a Vintage Car going to be outside and a mockup unexploded bomb. So wish me luck. Hopefully this event is going to be megga.

It has been interesting doing the research. The area suffered 2 days of intensive bombing. It is hard to believe it now. 3 bombs fell in the Park and several fell a few yards away in a street on the East side of the Park but yet the House still stood unharmed.

Found out a resident in Bishops House was ARP warden but not there during the Blitz. Still don't know who was there during the Blitz. I have a gap from 1929-1944 and a gap between 1759 and 1804.

Still I live in hopes. Meanwhile I have got my trenchcoat and my Snood.
