Our Picture shows: A London Doubledecker Bus, part of the London massacre just four years ago and an earlier London Doubledecker Bus bombed out during World War II....
Four years ago today the cowardly London Bombers struck, hoping to join 97 virgins but bottled it and dumped their bags of death without waiting to experience the effects at first hand.
The picture of the iconic London double decker bus ripped apart was flashed round the world. Amazingly although there were many fatalities and cruel injuries that day at the other bomb locations, some of the bus passengers actually walked away from the ripped apart top deck with little more than superficial wounds and damaged hearing.
It is easy to forget that in an earlier era, The London Blitz, Londoners would hardly bat an eyelid as nightly Hitler did his best to flatten London. It still amazes me that we actually won the War (and the British population is not now speaking German) as the USA took a couple of years before finally getting involved. Hollywood would have you believe otherwise.
This is a very small way over populated Island (currently with a deadbeat serially useless Government) but I suppose for many centuries we have always punched above our weight and long may it continue!
I'd also like to record a personal tribute to all the ambulance personnel, security and medical staff who pitched in to help the wounded that day. They would say its all part of the job but having been involved with the media arrangements for the Paddington Train Crash some years earlier. The dedication and professionalism is clear to see. So thank you.
