….a nearby Shell Oil Depot was bombed by the Japanese. The depot was ablaze for 3 days. On that same day, an ammunition train near the Railway Station sidings was also bombed. The impact damaged this church (pictured above) and the vicarage. The explosion shattered the glass panes at the high altar; and a wheel from the locomotive hit the bell tower.

Of course, this picture was before the bombing. In fact, this picture dates back to 1912. I’m sure you know which church I’m talking about 🙂
