The Gretna Bombing

When War came to Gretna

7th April 1941

by Sarah Harper

 

The night of the 7th April 1941 was calm and clear, the moonlight glistened off the Solway Firth and reflected brightly from the flat felt roofs of the hundreds of timber huts in the Gretna Township.  Unfortunately, Gretna shone like a beacon and became a target for a German bomber.

Using eye witness accounts and primary sources, this booklet details the tragic evening Gretna was bombed.

17 pages with illustrations and photographs throughout.

N.B. This booklet is incoporated within the book, “The Solway Military Coast” by Sarah Harper.
