APPEAL

ARE YOU 75 OR OVER?

DO YOU REMEMBER SATURDAY, 7th SEPTEMBER 1940?

WERE YOU A MEMBER OF THE RAF AIR CREW THAT FLEW THAT DAY TO INTERCEPT THE LUFTAFFE?

OR WERE YOU WORKING ON THE GROUND AT ONE OF THE AIRBASES, KENLEY, CROYDON, BIGGIN HILL, LYMPNE OR NORTH WEALD?

    If so I would love to hear from you!

Testimony Films are making a commemorative television documentary about the first day and night of the Blitz during World War Two and are looking to hear from anyone who remembers the 7th September 1940. By Sunday morning around 450 Londoners had been killed and 1,600 seriously injured. The main target was the London docks and the worst hit area was the old East End. Some bombs however were dropped on other parts of the capital including the West End.  We want to build up a detailed picture of what happened in the first 24 hours of the Blitz which left so many dead, injured or homeless.

If you have any memories of this day, perhaps you or your family were injured or survived a near miss; perhaps you lost a loved one or your home; Or perhaps you were involved in the emergency services or the forces who were protecting the city and the people of London. If you have a vivid memory and stories to tell, I would love to hear from you. Please contact Emily Sivyer in confidence on 0117 925 8589, email:  emily.sivyer @testimonyfilms.com or write to Blitz Appeal, Testimony Films, 12 Great George StreetBristol, BS1 5RH
