Bill. I lived in Tottington at that time about 1/2 a mile from the bomb site. The bomb landed behind the small cottages and demolished some and partly others, it damaged the church but badly damaged the school so much so that the pupils had to be taught at the Methodist Primary School in Club Row for many months whilst St. Ann's was repaired. It blew out windows for hundreds of yards. The survivors included Colin and Malcombe MacDonald the former would become Burnley and England goalkeeper, the latter join the Lancashire Fusiliers and now lives in Sweden, the cottages and the school suffered the only real structural damage in the village. I heard this plane no sirens had gone off and I had got out of bed to go to the toilet, the bedroom was lit up by a brilliant white flash before the bang I was back under the clothes. My dad and I visited the site on Christmas morning I picked a piece of metal up about the size of a side plate as a souvenir but Mum put it in the bin as it may explode, I think she had something to do with bomb disposal.
