In the distance of this shot is Boulogne. Lorna Lloyd writes about the damage to the town on December 5th 1940 in her Diary of the war (previously blipped in full in the LornaL journal, and now available as a podcast series). The audio version of this can be found in Episode 7 of the podcast series.
It is thanks to Nettenet that we are able to tick Boulogne off our list of locations to post in our album of blipper-sourced places mentioned by Lorna in her war diary. Thank you Nettenet!
Can you help us in the same way that Nettenet has done?
If you have any photographs of places related to the war diary (see below) that you have not previously blipped, and that we could add to this journal, please do send it(them) to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can feature it(them) alongside the others that we have been blipping here since 13th July 2022.
**The photos that you send don't need to have been taken by you (so long as you are not breaking the copyright of someone else of course). Perhaps you have a sibling, son, daughter or other relation who lives in, or has visited, one of the places in our list and could be persuaded to join our wee challenge?**
We also realise that it is going to be difficult to source shots of some of the locations listed. We will therefore also be happy to receive photographs from blippers to represent these 'tricky' places (see for example our blip of 4th December). Thank you!
