Thanks Joy. [The home town Joy is referring to is Hull, and we read of it from the link the following: "Hull was the most severely bombed British city or town apart from London during the Second World War, with 86,715 buildings damaged and 95 percent of houses damaged or destroyed.[2] Of a population of approximately 320,000 at the beginning of the war, approximately 152,000 were made homeless as a result of bomb destruction or damage.

Despite the damage and heavy casualties, the port continued to function throughout the war..."
