Poster Print of Air raid damage to the gas holder at Swindon Works, 1942

Air raid damage to the gas holder at Swindon Works, 1942
Air raid damage to the gas holder at Swindon Works, 1942
Swindon Works following the air raid on 27th July 1942. The gas holder at the gas works is pock-marked by machine gun fire from a lone aircraft that had swooped over the town early in the morning. A fire broke out in the gas holder, but it was quickly put out and the holes were plugged with clay to prevent any further damage. It is interesting to note the strange breathing apparatus worn by the two men in the left of the image; presumably masks to combat the effects of any escaping gas.
