As part of BBC Coventry & Warwickshire's series Beyond the Blitz, marking 70 years since the November raid on Coventry, we have been using Twitter to share news from 1940 in real time. One tweet was of news that Buckingham Palace was hit on 13 September.
On the morning of 13 September 1940, incendiary and high explosive bombs hit the palace grounds and its chapel. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later to become Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother) were in residence at the time.
The King and Queen were about to go down to the palace's shelter when they were shook by bombs hitting the quadrangle. They were unhurt and spent the rest of the daytime raid in the shelter.
The Queen was later to comment: "I'm glad we have been bombed. Now I can look the East End in the face." As well as the courtyard, the Victoria memorial outside the palace was damaged too.
The Queen was to comment in a letter to her mother-in-law, Queen Mary, that the servants were "magnificent"' and that it affected her seeing the destruction in the East End of London and she minded it much more than being bombed herself.
What are these?
