The Blitz was the sustained bombing of Britain by Nazi Germany between 7 September 1940 and 10 May in the Second World War. While the Blitz hit many towns and cities across the country, it began with the bombing of London for 57 consecutive nights.
Boys clear rubble and begin to prepare the ground with spade, fork and rake, in order plant beans on a makeshift allotment on a London bomb site. The seeds they will be planting were sent to them from America.
Germany bombs London 7-15 September 1940 On 7 September 1940, the Luftwaffe unleashed a merciless bombing campaign against London and Britain's major cities.
