With little more than a week before Remembrance Day I decided to look back to 1941 and put a bit of a local slant on the story.
What I needed was an interview with someone who had lived through the Blitz in south Liverpool. I didn't have to look far. My mum was born in 1930 and spent the whole of WWII living in south Liverpool.
What you will find below is her story. Memories of living in fear. The droning engines of bombers. Whistling bombs screeching through the night sky. Death and destruction. And then there's the twist that led Mum to see Germans in a different light - and not as enemies to be feared.Listen, enjoy, and don't forget to spare a thought for anyone who has ever died in war.
