What was Harborne like in the Blitz. I know St John’s Church was destroyed but apart from that I haven’t heard of any other bombs in Harborne.

I seem to remember that Harborne Library had a map showing where the bombs fell in Harborne - I think there were only a few. They also have information about the Harborne Home Guard and a few phots of bomb damage. Hope they still have them - it must be nearly 30 yrs since I was in there looking at them!
