Fulton, London firefighters lay wreaths at churches in memory of WW2 blitz
Thursday, December 30, 2010
After church bells pealed at the same time in London and Fulton, two Fulton firemen Wednesday afternoon laid a wreath at the entrance to the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton.
It was part of a British-American commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the blitz bombing of London during World War II.
“Some people don’t even realize that this reconstructed church in Fulton is the same church that was destroyed in London,” Fulton firefighter Michael Bainbridge said.
