  • Interviewee name: Will Parsons

  • Date of event: 14 Nov 1940

  • "The worst type of bonfire night" This is a letter that was written in November 1940 by my mother, Joan Parsons, to her uncle in America. In the letter Joan describes the blitz of Coventry; the sights, sounds and emotions that she experienced. This is a long clip but worth watching and listening to.

Thank you for sharing this brilliantly written letter; you read it very well. Did the "great tall grinning girl" get to America?
