I live in London; My Nan before she joined the WAF 'Women's Air Force' in WWII was living in London as war broke out. She got bombed out twice. Young people bounce back though, and she was on the South Coast serving at a Radar station plotting planes and doing maps and stuff under the command of General Eisenhower who took control of the southern part of England.
This city, London, got bombed so much during that war, on a dailey basis; yet people still carried on as normal. If you didn't have an air raid shelter to go to when the air raid siren rang, then in London, Underground Stations were your bomb shelter with people sleeping on the platforms. They had rationing too and you had to register with your local butcher/taylor.
