The The aftermath of the bombing during World War 2. The night of the 18th/19th June 1940, when Cambridge first experienced the horrors of war when within moments two High Explosive bombs were dropped destroying numbers 1-6 Vicarage Terrace and badly damaging numbers 7-10.

Extract from Liverpool Daily Post - Wednesday 25 September 1940, page 4:

The German High Command communique yesterday stated: “In reply to the British bombing of the ancient German University town of Heidelberg, which has no military objective whatsoever, Cambridge was bombed.”
