Luftwaffe bombing raids

John Penney from Bristol has spent many years researching Luftwaffe operations in the area of the County of Avon, and some of the material he has amassed covers the raids on Cheltenham in 1940. The town was mentioned in Luftwaffe post raid documentation, and copies of this, plus John’s summarised notes of the bombing raids, are available to members on request.

Polly Baynes gave a lively talk to CLHS on the history of the Cheltenham Charity Organisation Society (see page 4 of our July 2023 Newsletter for a review of the talk). Polly has kindly shared her dissertation with us, and this is available on request to members.
