Family lose husband and twins to bombing raid

Todays story is sad, but unfortunately not an isolated incident during WW2. During the day of the 19th November 1940  no one could have foreseen what would happen overnight. It was another night of bombing in Birmingham but worse than most. Alfred Cope, a member of the AFS, and both of his twin sons, Stanley and John, lost their lives when a bomb fell in St Stephens Road Selly Park. Our thanks to BARRA, Doug Smith and  Lynda Peedle (Grand daughter) for their contributions.
