Roy and Joan Milliner.png

Joan and Roy Milliner were both born in Coventry in 1931.

In our house we had a brick floor in the kitchen and an incendiary bomb had come through the roof and had landed on the floor in the kitchen and burned itself out round the shelves' paper edging - the flames had burnt the paper edge but not set the shelf afire. We could trace the hole in the kitchen ceiling and the bathroom floor. I picked up about five bombs next day from our garden and I was absolutely astounded to find stamped on these incendiary bombs, I can see it today as clear as anything, Sterling Metals, Nuneaton!"
