I visited Coventry in June 2017 – it is quite poignant to view the remains of the cathedral.

On a recent visit to Bodensee, Germany at Lindenhof Park, I found the ‘Peace Pillar’.
This is a simple, white marble pillar of square section, about 10 feet high. This marks, on the 50th anniversary, the raid on Coventry. At it’s base is a bronze plaque, with a few words and the prayer? ‘give us peace.’
Not far from this town ,Lindau, is Friedrichshaven, where two of the centres of aircraft and airship production Dornier and Zeppelin are to be found.
