EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from March 1941, we witness the bravery and expertise of a Royal Engineers bomb disposal team in action. The scene is set near Shripney Road in Bognor Regis, where an unexploded bomb has come to rest several feet below a serene kale field. With utmost caution and precision, the men can be seen tying a rope around the potentially lethal device. Their steady hands and focused expressions reveal their determination to neutralize this imminent threat to public safety during the tumultuous times of World War Two. A poignant reminder of the dangers faced on the home front during wartime, a sign reading "Danger Unexploded Bomb" lays close by as a stark warning for all who pass. This image encapsulates both the resilience and resourcefulness exhibited by ordinary individuals turned heroes amidst chaos. Preserved within West Sussex Record Office's L Alouette Collection, this photograph serves as an invaluable historical artifact documenting not only the efforts of these brave engineers but also shedding light on life during one of humanity's darkest periods. Let us remember those who risked their lives daily to protect others from harm, paying tribute to Frank Lalouette whose work immortalizes these unsung heroes. As we reflect upon this image, may it serve as a testament to human courage and inspire future generations never to forget our shared history.
