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.
