Hi all. For some reason, a vaguely remembered fact come into my mind this morning.
We are, (or were) lucky enough to have a bit of history right under our noses, as the streachers they used to transport those injured in the Blitz were later made into fences across South East London. Some, I think, are in Dulwich/Peckham.
I wanted to see if I walked past any in my daily life, and found that there was a campaign in 2017 to 'save' or commemorate them in some way: [www.standard.co.uk
I apologise if the answer takes somebody else seconds to find, but I couldn't see the outcome of the campaign online, and the campaign website doesnt seem to load from me.
So, were the ones at risk saved? I admit the lack of info doesn't seem positive. Likewise, does anyone know of any that may still exist? I'm not sure why, but the fact that they existed, the resourcefulness of their repourposing, and the fact that we could walk past them without knowing their history really touched me. I'd quite like to know where they are, does anyone have info?
