This book, when read in conjunction with "Portsmouth - a Shattered City" by Anthony Triggs, gives one not only
a clear picture of the terrible devastation caused by the bombing, but the swiftness in clearing up the debris.
Sleeves were quickly rolled, shovels and wheelbarrows found, and the City gained a semblance of normality again
despite the gaping holes and missing buildings,
One can have nothing but admiration for the citizens of Portsmouth,their courage and spirit in the face of
adversity. Truly did they " Keep Calm and Carry On".
