Clydebank Blitz, 75th Anniversary

EDM number 1247 in 2015-16, proposed by Martin Docherty on 14/03/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Military operations and Western Europe.

That this House marks the 75th anniversary of the Clydebank Blitz, which, on 13 and 14 March 1941, involved the bombing of what were seen by the Nazi regime as strategic military targets, including the John Brown shipyard, Beardmore shipyard, Admiralty Oil Storage and Singer Sewing Machine factory, then, munitions factory; understands that the town of Clydebank suffered the most concentrated bomb damage of any part of the British Isles during World War II, with only seven houses remaining undamaged; notes that official records only notes that 528 people died during the two-day attack while not including those dead pulled from the rubble in subsequent days and that 617 people were seriously injured, with hundreds more being injured by blast debris, not to mention the post-traumatic stress disorder impact on the thousands of people who were displaced across the west of Scotland and Ireland; pays due respect to those injured and killed by the raids and recognises the sacrifices made and the role played by the people of Clydebank in their contribution to the Allied effort that finally defeated the Axis powers in 1945; and congratulates the town and entire community of Clydebank for retaining its commemoration of, and links to, the events of World War II though the Clydebank Blitz Memorial Group.

This motion has been signed by a total of 44 MPs.
