my mother who is 88 and was working in the supermarine factory when it was bombed on sept 24th 1940, she survived by going to the wrong shelter, her allotted shelter had a direct hit with 100 or so killed.is there anyone else still alive who worked there? and does anyone know what aircraft were involved etc? or any other details about the raid would be gratefully received as there doesn,t seem to be a lot of information about this raid
