101 High Street was a Confectioners shop which cornered with Lombard Street, it is now where the Green is outside the Cathedral. This is where you will find the Memorial Plaque.

12 People from several families sheltered here on hearing the air raid sirens on Friday 10th January 1941. This was the night of the Portsmouth Blitz when 300 Bombers focussed on Portsmouth using St Thomas's Cathedral as a guide to the Dockyard.

171 people died that night, the Guildhall was destroyed and so was the Nave of the Garrison Church, along with many houses and shops.

Gone But Never Forgotten
