Three mothers gave birth to babies in private A.R.P. shelters during a raid over a South-East urban district. The mothers and babies are doing well.
In the same raid a house was it by a bomb shortly after a young mother had given birth to a baby. The house was damaged and mother and baby were removed to hospital in the A.R.P. ambulance. A mile from her house a maternity home was shaken by the explosion of a bomb. No one was hurt.
I wonder what happened to those babies, and whether they grew up knowing how dramatic their entrance to the world was?
