Wartime Lincoln - a Memory of Lincoln.
I was born in Gibbeson Terrace off the High street in early 1941. My first memory is hearing air raid sirens going off early in the morning, I think they were just practising. We were a poor family although my dad was doing special war work, so he was not conscripted. One morning after the air raid siren went off there was an almighty crash nearby and my parents bed collapsed while they were in it I think a German plane had bombed a house in Dixon St killing several people. All the time the sky was full of aeroplanes both day and night, they were obviously bombers going over to Germany, These are my earliest memories as little more than a baby so they are a bit vague, still they have stuck in my mind over all these years.
