It had been the middle of the night when the air raid siren blared across London. Jimmy’s mother came running into the room and told him to get dressed , to get out of the house and to the air raid shelter. Jimmy got dressed as fast as he could and ran out the door with his mother. Together they ran to the shelter which was actually a subway station and sat down. After a while they heard the drone of aircraft above their heads and then the sound of bombs. Dust fell from the ceiling as bombs shook the ground. In the morning all the people in the shelter got out and looked at their destroyed city. Jimmy tried to keep his eyes open but the light blinded him.
