Alan Woodfield, who unveiled the Dulwich Society World War 2 memorial plaque to the victims of two bombings in the Melbourne Grove/Lytcott Grove area has published his third book of poetry.

Alan was aged 15 when the second bombing took place.  He was living with his family in Playfield Crescent and remembers the night in January 1943 when the Luftwaffe dropped parachute mines in retaliation for an RAF raid on Berlin the day before.  One of the poems describes this tragedy. The Journal published the poem about this event 70 years ago and it is included in this volume.

A Third Venture Into Verse by Alan Woodfield is published by United Press £3.99
