History of 13 Portugal Place


Mrs M A Scott


On the night of 27th July 1941 ¬†after the raid that caused widespread damage in the area, an unexploded bomb was discovered in the basement party wall. Another rested ¬†unexploded in the outbuildings of ‘The Mitre.’ When later analysed it was discovered that these were Sprengband C.50s, the first ‘Firepots’.
