Remnants of war

London was horribly bombed from 1940 to 1943. The city suffered a second barrage of flying bombs and rockets from 1944 to 1945. About a quarter of London was destroyed. Quite a number of older London buildings show scarring from the bombings. Incidentally, these markings are incorrectly called shrapnel. Interesting!
